the quality epoxies i have used ( devcon, brownells, Sig, jb weld ... ) ... have a shelf life of several years ... maybe 5 or 10 ?? ....   and you can always try a half-teaspoon sample mix to test.   look for initial set up at room temps of about 1/2-1 hr., and completely hard in 2 hours ... ( not cured ( 2 days )  but hard with no gooey residue  .

hope this helps.  ken

That's very informative, but I'm long past the point of using this. I'd hoped to, in good conscience, offer this as barter, among other items. I didn;t know if it had any value to anyone.

Micro-Bed if in its sealed toothpaste tubes is good for about 20 years. The later packaging is only good for maybe ten years. Once opened it depends upon temperature and storage, colder lasts longer, stored in an unairconditioned shop, I've had it go bad in a couple of years. It was always my favorite epoxy.

This is still unopened. I would not open it until ready to use it. The tubes feel pliant. I suspected it was good but wanted confirmation. Thanks to all. - - - Pepe Ray

If you don't want to use it I would like it?  Micro-Bed was my "go to" bedding compound for many years.  I've bedded many a rifle action with it.  PM me if if you don't want it.
