Shelf life for CA glue
Dec 12th, 2016 at 2:16pm
 
I found out that you can purchase a 16oz. bottle of ca glue.
This should last me for quite a while.

Will some of it get hard or go bad if I don't use it by a certain date???

I was thinking of filling a small 2oz. bottle and refilling as I need more.
The amount being stored would be kept in the fridge.

What do you think?

You idea of refilling a smaller bottle and keeping the rest in the fridge  is the way to go.  Works well for me.

When you're not using it, put the smaller bottle in the fridge, too.

My biggest problem with CA glues is the nozzles get mucked up pretty quickly.  When a nozzle gets clogged, I put it in a small bottle of acetone, the solvent for CA, and that cleans it right up.  I have several spare nozzles and I store them in a bottle of acetone.  Ned

Since I've tried not to touch the nozzle to the item being glued, I've not had "muck up" problems.  Never thought to try soaking in acetone, thanks for the tip.
