Shelf Life Details Storage: Both parts of this resin system should be stored at temperatures between 20 to 30 degrees Celsius, and 30% to 60% relative humidity. When not in use, containers should be kept tightly closed. Storage at conditions outside those suggested may compromise the performance of the resin. Shelf Life Temperature (°F) 68 to 86

Don't Use For Not recommended for outdoor applications
Best Practices for 3M 235
Pour the warm resin into the preheated 100ºC mold. If no mold is used, dip the preheated part into the resin. Heating the resin and mold aids impregnation. For maximum impregnation, evacuate for 5 to 15 minutes at 5 mm of mercury (Hg) absolute pressure, or pour under vacuum and hold for several minutes before releasing.
Mix the separate parts before removing them from their containers. They may be warmed to 60ºC (140ºF) to aid mixing. Weigh the correct proportions of the separate parts to within 2% accuracy and combine them. Thoroughly blend the mixture until the color is absolutely uniform or a homogeneous mixture is obtained.
Where minimum stress and maximum thermal shock resistance are required, the lower temperature cure cycle is recommended. (See “Curing Guide” of Handling Properties section). Time should be added to the cure cycle to allow the resin to reach the curing temperature.
