AW Extra 11/8/12 - Longer-Lasting Polyurethane Glue

RATE THIS:

Longer-Lasting Polyurethane Glue

Polyurethane glue is great stuff but has a short shelf life after the bottle is opened. That’s because the humidity in the air inside the bottle causes the glue to slowly cure. I found I can extend the shelf life by squeezing out the air. I keep the air from seeping back into the bottle by adding a spring clamp or two.
