Storage & Handling

Stability and Storage

Cardolite products will absorb moisture and carbon dioxide when left in open containers, which may result in increased viscosity, discoloration, reduction of reactivity, and/or crystallization of the products. These products should be kept tightly sealed in their original containers when not in use, and stored in a cool, dry place.
