Joe, which product?

This response submitted by George on 6/5/01. ( georoof@aol.com )

As Epo-Grip is the name of many of the adhesives, I need to know which one. Both the injectable and the Liquid Fast set have a tendency for the molecules to align when left unused for long periods. You can cure this very quickly with a microwave. Don't smoke it now, just enough to agitate the molecules. The hide paste and the putties will harden if not kept in airtight containers. Microwaving them CAN work, but this is a short term fix as the liquid portion has been absorbed by the filler or evaportated. Contact Steve at Newton Supply 800-888-2467 on the specific product and he'll tell you how it can be fixed.

Thanks George!
