Thread: devcon shelf life

    devcon shelf life

    once opened, can you close up a jar of devcon 10112 again or is it a 'goner'. ie. the smallest jar I can find is 500g, but I'm only doing a small recoil lug job and will probably only need a fraction of it.

    also, can I use a brown dye on/in it, or does it have to be used in it's original colour?

    thanks for the help from any forum devcon users

    I've a tub of devcon steel putty on the shelf here that was first opened in 2006 and it still seems perfectly OK everytime I use it.

    PKL, if you are only doing a small job get a small pack (15ml i think) of JB Weld, just as good as Devcon, easier to work and less expanse.

    Thanks Ian,

    will give it a go with JB Weld now ordered for less than a fiver.

    Hope you picked the right JB weld.
    Ttrying to bed an action in something with the consistancy of cream that can be worked for 8 hours will not be easy.
