Cain, that's good news that you got a replacement but I would have to agree with some of the posters that if an unopened bottle of CA glue were already hard by the time you got it, they probably had some failures in the packaging that caused it.

I guess now that you have a fresh bottle, watch yoru fingers! I always end up gluing my fingers to something when I do my tires!

The mercury stuff is what I have now in addition to the AE stuff that came in (need to glue while waiting). It works well. Reminds me of the Pro Fusion stuff. I think the only hobby grade stuff I ever had issues with was from Great Planes. Just wouldn't stick well.

I've been storing my CA in the fridge for a while now... so far no problems!

CA doesn't like humid places... I store them in ziplock bags with some desiccant (silica gel packs found in food packages, etc..) and all air squeezed out, seems to work fine.

I have never had any issues with CA.All different brands. Mine gets hot and cold. The only thing I do special is burp the bottle when I am done using it. I still have some bottles that are over 2 years old. But if I do have an issue I will resort to fridge or freezer.

Where did you get it from? Super Glue typically has a little over a year shelf life, god knows how long the distributor and shop had it on their shelve.

Never really had a problem with CA drying up in the bottle unless I didn't seal it correctly.

CA should be clear in color.. When you buy a new bottle at the hobby shop, make sure it is not yellowed at all.

Typically, it should have around a year shelf life... I never buy more than a 1 or 2 oz bottle anyway.. just in case the tip goes bad.

I probably buy 3 to 4 bottles a year for my r/c car stuff... more if I'm building my other hobby stuff.

Good luck!

Jerome

wasn't too long ago and the glue was clear, even clear when it hardened up. Older style bottle though.
