Packaging & Storage Information:
- 235 kilograms of brand new intact steel barrels
- It should be stored in original tightly closed container, in dry and warm conditions to avoid crystallization. Under these conditions, it has a storage life of at least two years from the date of manufacturing. Epotec YD 128 Epoxy Resin may become hazy or crystallize upon long storage especially when exposed to low temperatures. The resin can be restored to its original condition by warming to 55-60ºC while stirring. For handling or pumping the maximum temperature recommended is 80ºC.
