Storage, Handling and Shelf Life
Storage must be in a dry, non-corrosive environment between 10 to 40 °C (50 to 104 °F). The surface may lose its shine and appear a dull shade of grey. This is a surface phenomenon and is not detrimental to product functionality. Solder bar has a shelf life determined by the alloy used in the bar. For alloys containing more than 70% lead, the shelf life is 2 years from the date of manufacture. Other alloys have a shelf life of 3 years from the date of manufacture.
Kester bar solder is now available and being sold by the individual bar. Each bar equals 10 lbs.
