Default Does plastic go bad?

I have a 5 Gallon bucket of the "green" plastic from Lure Craft. It was fine when I first started to use it but then I took a couple of months off. I shook the 5 gallon bucket a bunch and then poured it into a smaller container where I shook the crap out of it. The first couple of pours didn't cure very wel at all. They left a slimey residue in my mold and the ones that did cure felt very soft. Did I just not stir it well enough or has the plastic gone bad. Will adding hardener to it fix the problem?

I think you may not have stirred it enough. What you really need is to get your hands on one of those paint paddles that mount in a drill. Then you can stir it up real good before you split the batch up in separate gallon jugs. Then you should be able to shake those up without any issues. You may want to take the lot number and email it to LC just to be sure there was not a problem with a certain batch.

I have a piece of wire clothes hanger shaped into an L that I chuck in a drill and use for stirring. I can get it completely on the bottom and loosen all the hardner that has settled. Then I can move it up and down in the column to get a complete mix. It only takes a few minutes and keeps from having ruined pours.

So, I tried the metal coat hanger trick and it worked like a champ. My pours came out clean and solid. Thanks Jig Man.

That's a good thing.

Just keep it handy and use it for a minute or so before you pour and your plastisol will be good to go for years if need be.
