  • Store in a room with a temperature that falls no lower than 15°C (60°F) and no higher than 30°C (80°F)

  • Store in a dark storage space such as a cabinet to minimize potential exposure to UV lighting

  • Store away from heat, flames, sparks, and strong UV sources

  • Keep out of reach of children and animals

  • Keep resin away from food, drinks, and other consumable products

  • Keep container closed to prevent water absorption and/or other contaminates from becoming mixed with the product
