Description of key information

Some internal company reports (or better notes) indicate that storage at ambient temperature, in the dark, and under exclusion of humidity is stable.
Unfavourable conditions are extreme heat (> 55 °C), high humidity and sunlight. These three conditions can lead to hydrolysis, or even more important, to self-polymerization .

Additional information

No formal studies on the stability of TGIC during storage have been performed, but there are a variety of small expeiments indicating the major adverse conditions during storage: heat, humidity and sun light.

Already one of these three conditions can destroy the activity of TGIC as a epoxy hardener. All data available originate from application laboratories based on customer questions.
