Pot life & shelf life | 1 September, 2013

Hi,

can someone give definition on pot life? does the pot life start once it's been taken out from fridge or the pot life starts once recommended thawing ends?

It depends: * If you're talking jars, I'd be as conservative as possible. So, 3 days from when the jar is removed from the frig would be my pot life limit. * If you're talking Semco cartridges, I'd be talking about 10 days from when the cartridge is removed from the frig.

Too many operators: * Leave jars open * Partially close the cover * Don't replace internal air purger in jars * Mix alloys in jars * Mix flux types in jars * ... and on and on ...

BR, davef
