    Partially used can has been stored in studio for about a year. Attempted to use it today and discovered there very little adhesive on the fabric - always used this brand with no problem. Checked several quilt sandwiches I sprayed over the last couple of years, some just a few months ago (waiting to be quilted) and the adhesive was still strong.
    Anyone had this type of problem with this or other brand? Cans are stored in normal temperature with cap on properly.
    Is it possible the adhesive can deterioate in the can, but can last for years after its been sprayed?????
    I'm baffled, don't think its a bad batch because its worked until this application and YES, I did shake the can well LOL

    I think it gets old in the can.

    No problem here - are you sure you shook it long enough?

    I just used a can that I've had for 8 years and it sprayed fine.

    I use the same brand - I just used a can that was a partial left over for about a year and it worked fine.
