Storing open Tempro?

We used part of a tube of Tempro today, so how do we store the rest for a few weeks? I know I've read something on the forums before but I can't find it now. Thanks!

I now seem to recall someone suggesting that one cap it and put it in the fridge. Which, in turn, makes me wonder why I didn't remember that two weeks ago.

I thought I remembered storing it in the fridge too, but I wanted to make sure I wasn't crazy!

I put it in a ziplok bag and toss it in the freezer, and it will keep for years.

Same here. It thaws out quickly (in Phoenix) and can be frozen again and again...

Screw a large wood/sheet metal screw into the nozzle. The caulk will harden around the threads and make it easier to pull out.

Fridge-it... but don't get caught.

Plug the end, wrap in plastic wrap, then fridge or freeze. If it is only going to be a week or two you don't have to fridge it. I use NP-1 a lot, which is Sonneborn's version of Trempro.

Seal it up w/zip loc bag and toss in the freezer. It keeps for as long as you might need it.

I usually wear blue nitrile gloves when working with the Tempro. When finished for the day, I just cut a finger off of one of the gloves and put it over the tip. Press all the air out and secure with a rubber band or a piece of masking tape. I leave a little blob on the tip and when I use it again the blob left on the tip will make it easy to pull the plug out of the tip and I am ready to go.

You can get little tiny covers for them - look like really small condoms or finger cots but smaller to use for Trempro or any sealant for cover. Chris gets them at the hardware store, I think. You just roll them on and pull off when you're ready to use the sealant again.

Tempro is the caulk that is used to seal up the joints of an Airstsream.
