Shelf Life

Posted: Sunday, June 10, 2012 5:59 PM Quote
   I purchased a gallon of Ekofill a while ago.  Does it have a shelf life that I would have to worry about?  I opened it today and there was some settling at the bottom of the container, but it did go back into solution after mixing with a paddle.
   Do any of the other products have a shelf life?

Each can says to use with in 1 year right on the front. Also every shipment gets a copy of the warranty and return information sent with it which includes proper storage information. It is normal for a little settling after a few months. If it stirs back up and sprays normally then you should be just fine. Always spray a test panel first.

On paints if you stir them up and they settle out the next day then they should not be used.

Always make sure you are getting to the bottom of the can when stirring. Sometimes when paint gets old or has been exposed to high heat the solids can settle out and form a hard puck on the bottom of the can.
