How To Store Your Construction Adhesive

Storing adhesives the right way allows you to use your adhesive to complete multiple projects over time instead of throwing it away after one use.

Simple tips for storing your adhesive:

For Squeeze Tubes

Step 1.

After using your adhesive, squeeze a small amount of adhesive into the cap before placing the cap back on the tube.
 

Step 2.

Gently snug the cap in place so that the adhesive in the cap is squeezed out along the edges of the tube opening. Applying a small amount of adhesive in the cap ensures the tube opening will stay clear of dried adhesive and will be ready for use on your next project.
 

Step 3.

Store in a cool place, preferably with a temperature of less than 85°F.

For Cartridges

Step 1.

After usage, gun a small amount of adhesive out.

 
Step 2.

Allow it to dry at the end of the cartridge tip. Allowing a small amount of adhesive to dry at the tip will form a natural plug, which can later be removed. This will ensure the tube opening stays clear of dried adhesive and will be ready to use on your next project.
 

Step 3.

Store in a cool place, preferably with a temperature of less than 85°F.

Note: Aside from a few exceptions, adhesive products cure or dry from the outside, allowing these methods to work.

Please refer to the Product Label, Technical Data Sheet (TDS) or Safety Data Sheet (SDS) for safety and detailed application instructions.
