What are the storage conditions and shelf life of Water-Based Adhesive?

Publish Time: 2024-07-06
As a commonly used adhesive material, the storage conditions and shelf life of Water-Based Adhesive are crucial to maintaining its performance and quality.

Water-Based Adhesive usually needs to be stored in a dry, well-ventilated environment. Humidity is a key factor. Excessive humidity may cause the adhesive to absorb moisture, thereby affecting its performance and bonding effect. The relative humidity of the ideal storage environment should be controlled between 50% and 70%.

Temperature is also one of the important storage conditions. Generally speaking, Water-Based Adhesive should be stored at room temperature, usually recommended to be between 5℃ and 35℃. Avoid storing in places where the temperature is too high or too low. High temperature may accelerate the chemical reaction of the adhesive and shorten the shelf life; low temperature may cause the adhesive to freeze or deteriorate.

During storage, ensure that the adhesive packaging is well sealed to prevent air from entering and reacting with the adhesive, or to prevent dust, impurities, etc. from mixing and affecting the quality of the adhesive.

Regarding the shelf life of water-based adhesives, this is affected by a variety of factors. Generally speaking, the shelf life of unopened water-based adhesives under correct storage conditions is usually between 6 months and 2 years. However, if the storage conditions are not ideal, such as high ambient temperature, high humidity or damaged packaging, the shelf life may be greatly shortened.

The shelf life of different types and brands of water-based adhesives may also vary. Some high-performance, special-purpose adhesives may have a shorter shelf life, while some general-purpose adhesives have a relatively long shelf life.

When using water-based adhesives, you should pay attention to the shelf life information on the product label and use it within the shelf life. If the shelf life is exceeded, the bonding performance of the adhesive may decrease, and even deteriorate, solidify, etc., and the expected bonding effect cannot be achieved.

In order to ensure the quality and performance of water-based adhesives, it is very important to strictly follow the correct storage conditions and use them reasonably within the shelf life. This can maximize the role of Water-Based Adhesive and ensure the reliability and stability of the bonding effect.
