Protecting Glue From The Heat?

I have been using Whitlam / Wet Dry Low Voc PVC glue. I open the can to use it and it appeared to be thinner that usual. I guess due to the excessive heat in the vehicle.

I was reluctant to use it for fear of failure.

Do you do anything to protect your glue from the heat this time of year?

Thanks,

Mex

Never used that brand. Heat is an issue but I typically see it thicken up. As long as it flows and coats , it is good to use. I do mostly repairs and buy smaller containers in the summer. Can not keep it in the cab of the truck as it makes me

Any cement stored in the interior of a vehicle might be an OSHA violation. I know there are "solvent safe" add-ons for vans, where the safe is vented to the outside through the floor of the van.

We use Weld-On 717.

I keep some on a rag by the AC vents in the truck. Makes driving the I-95 super slab a unique experience.

I would never put my glue in the cab. Humidity and air is my biggest thing. You must have the material safety data sheets with you at all times, you can get them from Weld-On web site. I have only been asked one time but I was glad I had them OSHA was handing out fines like candy on A job. I understand most people will never see OSHA but I try to do what I can to cover our safety and cover our tail.

DOT is stopping pickup trucks here... you best have your $hit together. MSDS, user labels, containment vessels, fire extinguishers, first aid kits, eye wash station...

WOW, I can see Houston as they have so many oil companies down there. In my 30 plus years in DFW, I have not seen one OSHA inspection.
