The shelf life of Nicrobraz® Brazing Paste materials is minimum of three to nine (3-9) months.
This means that the material will last at least that long and much longer, when properly stored in closed containers. There is no deterioration of the brazing filler metal itself. As long as the material will extrude from the cartridge satisfactorily, it is still usable.
The shelf life period begins with the date of manufacture of the material. The manufacturing date is shown on the container as “Mfg Date” and is given in the order of Month, Day and Year.
The ideal storage temperature for this material is above 4°C (40°F) and below 27°C (80°F). This material does not require refrigeration.
