A: Titebond III has an official Shelf Life of 2 years from date of manufacture, but with good storage conditions, should remain usable for 4-5 years. Storing Titebond III (or Titebond II) in temperatures above 80°F can reduce usable life significantly. Typically, Titebond III will form a thick brown gel when it is past its usable life. The lot number on the bottle will give the manufacture date. The lot number is dot matrix printed in black ink on either the shoulder of the bottle or on the bottom. It will begin with the letter "A", followed by nine numbers. Format is Ayymmdd### where yy is the year, mm is the month and dd the day of the month the product was manufactured. ### is the batch number for that day.
