Aves Apoxie Sculpt
« on: Thu Apr, 07, 2016, 06:12:PM »


  I figured while I wait for some stuff to cure I'd post this for what it's worth -

      I've had these two containers af Apoxie Sculpt for like 3 years .
       
       Now they package this stuff stacked together as below , like a whole lotta other two-part products ,  secured with plastic film :


                 

  and I had them stacked at the bench like that .
      But a couple years ago  -- or maybe less   ??? --  I noticed the Part B was discolored and drying out and becoming stiff :

             

     I use this stuff sporadically  , so it may have been sitting for months unused prior to the discovery .

            So now I store them as below so there is even pressure around the sealing surface of the lid and I haven't seen any more deterioration .
     

           

   
    I discarded some of the worst of it .    It still cures completely but it seems to cure faster now  -  but that might just be perception .

   Anyone else seen this ?

I've noticed the discoloration before, but never had any problems using it

   Meh .
     I wouldn't be that generous .
     The worst of it --  and only Part B was affected -- was too dried out to provide a workable mix .

     True , the product appears to cure completely but it's ( the messed up amount  :( )  essentially unusable as a sculpting medium.

         I used a chunk of the the worst as ballast for a  project that required no finesse   ;D
