Hi, can someone give definition on pot life? does the pot life start once it's been taken out from fridge or the pot life starts once recommended thawing ends?

It depends: * If you're talking jars, I'd be as conservative as possible. So, 3 days from when the jar is removed from the frig would be my pot life limit. * If you're talking Semco cartridges, I'd be talking about 10 days from when the cartridge is

I have a MS level 3 component that has been on the shelf for 7 years. Should it be baked before usage. The HIC card reads ok- and it was stored with desiccant. History of the part is unknown, was purchased from franchised distribution.
