Storage Guidelines

The resin should be stored indoors in the original,
unopened and undamaged packaging, in a dry place
away from heat ignition sources and sunlight at
temperatures below 25°C. Keep containers closed
when not in use. Shelf life is reduced at higher
temperatures and the properties of the resin might
change during storage. The shelf life is 90 days for these
resins when stored indoors in closed, opaque
containers at 25°C out of direct sunlight. Storage
conditions at higher temperatures or in direct sunlight
will reduce the self life and may also cause the resin to
experience gel time and viscosity drift. Version: 0108/1.1; Date of Issue: March, 2016.
