    Shelf Life Details Shelf life is one year at 23ºC in sealed containers. This resin will slowly absorb moisture from ambient air, which may cause foaming upon melting of the product. Therefore, care should be taken to minimize moisture exposure. Keep containers sealed when not in use and store in cool, dry area.
    Shelf Life Temperature (°F) 73
    Shelf Life (mon) 12
