Over the past couple of weeks I’ve noticed my container of Jack’s Tap seemed to be absorbing moisture. However, this didn’t make since the humidity has been low between 40 - 50%. Additionally, this was happening while the container was covered and closed. Yesterday I left the container opened thinking it would dry out. I was very much mistaken.
The original bag and remaining product in it is perfectly fine. It is dry and granular as it was when I first opened it.
I wonder why this happened to the amount I put into a small plastic container that I open and use every or every other day.
It must have something to do with being exposed to the air. It is funny that it doesn’t happen (or has not) to Jack’s two part A & B. I also have them in containers for easy access.
I guess I will put a smaller amount of TAP in the container (maybe inside a plastic bag) and see what happens.
I know my bag of Part B is definitely much more wet than my Part A - I bet the calcium nitrate in Tap and Clone, being built into a single-part formula, is the culprit for absorbing the moisture as much as it does.
I have been using my wet-ish Part B for almost a year now, no adverse effects. I just have to check my PPMs with a meter when I use it, because its weight isn’t accurate anymore.
