Ambroid Pro Weld Evaporating?
Posted by PontiacRich on Saturday, April 01, 2017 6:11 PM

Some years ago I bought seven bottles of ProWeld.  Since I don't model regularly the bottles have been sitting on a shelf.  I've noticed some of the bottles are now completely empty having never been used.  Several of them I never took the oacking tape off from when I bought them.

Question:  Does ProWeld evaporate in a bottle with the lid tightly closed, or do I live in the Twilight Zone?

I believe that it does. I've seen super glue accelerator do that, too.

I recently had it happen to a bottle of ProWeld, too.  I don't believe their bottles really seal tightly, if they did, it couldn't evaporate.

Computer, did we bring batteries?.....Computer?

Hi Ya'll;

    This seems to be a problem inherent with this product . I solved it by Opening the bottles and putting a foil seal on the top and cranking the top down real tight . This gave me at least a year per bottle . I used a lot of it for court models .

      I have even had this happen to a quart sized can of M.E.K. . I impagine a micro tight seal is unobtainable with anything that has this product as a base . T.B.

Thanks Tank!  I'll try this.

Once a year I buy a year's supply of "Same-Stuff" from Micro Mark in 2oz. bottles.  Every bottle top is wrapped in Saran Wrap with elastic bands holding it around the bottle.

I don't even lose 1/16th of an inch in any bottle.

This will solve your problem.

Yes, I doubt I've ever used up a whole bottle. Usually empty due to evaporation when I reach for it. Always have a bottle of Testors liquid cement nearby; that stuff lasts years.
