JB Weld

Does JB Weld go bad? I keep it in a ditty bag in my topcase, and eventually the outer plastic tube falls apart. If I've never cut or squeezed the contents, is it still good?

Not from my experience... as long as it's soft enough to actually mix the two together, it'll work.

I havent had it go bad at all, and ive had some that sat around for a few years. Seems like I use it up within a year ish of opening it usually.

The putty stick version of epoxy seems to travel better in the on bike tool kit.

Also sticks where you put during the emergency road/trail repair.

Does JB Weld go bad? Only if it's running around with the wrong crowd.

I think as long as the tubes are tightly capped it stays in good shape.

WARNING: I was going through my kit wondering this just this past week. I started bending the tube to see if it was still flexible. It was, but the tube itself was not and a little piece broke off and flew right into my eye. Damn did that hurt - and still can't see quite right. I tossed it because I was pissed, but probably should have just put it in a few ziplocs.

I would say if the intended "use" is fairly important, just buy a new kit of the JB.

I just used some JB quik 2 weeks ago.
Saved us from having to tow the bike 100 miles. Had to go buy 4 quarts of oil though.
