LIQUID NAILS Adhesive products are good for two years after the manufacture date. However, we recommend using them within one year of purchase.
To find the product's manufacture date, refer to the seven-digit ink-dot number generally found on or near the bottom of the container. The first number signifies the year (7 represents 2007, 8 represents 2008, etc.); the second digit signifies the month (A represents January, B represents February, etc.).
Leaving opened cartridges exposed will cause the product to harden inside the cartridge. After one year from the manufacture date, an unopened product may harden in the cartridge, or its solvents could separate.
