Quickrete concrete bonding liquid


People,

have 2 bottles of above, years old: Both tacky after 5 minutes:

A) milky off white, pours out

B) transparent, golden honey colored, VERY thick (wont pour out of bottle- have to squeeze it out).

Are any of them still useable? No expiration date on bottle. Can I add water stir, to dilute the honey thick one to make more fluid??

Thanks.

Weigh the cost of failure to the value of the product----

I chuck out any old products---in my book the risk is way beyond the cost of fresh product---

Thanks, Mike, but that still doesnt tell me what the consistency/appearance should be of this liquid. Also, I agree- not knowing otherwise, throw it out, but rather than react out of fear, want to learn more about the chemical product.

Quickrete concrete bonding liquid


It is a latex emulsion. As the carrier (water) evaporates, the material gets thicker. If it doesn't stink it is fine to use.

Quickrete concrete bonding liquid


listen to Mike & Tscar & just go buy another gal of the stuff when/if you need it - its cheap & a little heavier than milk - ' stink ' is subjective w/little data to support the descriptive word
