Anchor seal
« on: September 24, 2016, 09:47:26 AM »
I got an unopened 5 gal pail at a yard sale for $5 bucks
The guy said it was 10 years old but stored inside
Is it still good ?
Thanks Bruno

I really don't know, but I believe I would take to a paint store or some where that has a paint shaker and asked them to shake it really good?

   I'm betting it is fine but agree mixing it might be a good idea. I bought one of those 5 gallon mixers that goes on my drill and I like it. If it was mine that's what I'd use. If you are worried about it you can send it to me and I promise to send you a a detailed after action report. :D

Is there anything in it that really degrades? I hope not, I have about ten-15 gallons of it sitting in a barrel in my storage shed, just in case I accidently start messing with logs again!  :-X

As long as it hasn't been allowed to freeze you should be ok.

Once it freezes it degrades.

I have to assume mine froze over winter in the storage shed, at least one year, maybe two. Now I'm glum. Is it still of any use, or is it useless?

Mix it up and paste a coat on something...you'll know if it's still good.
If it blends up and isn't chunky or gritty, I'd say it's still usable.

Good to know, I didn't know it can come with that. 


Around here, many of the concentration yards have many 55 gal drums of anchorseal kicking around...and shade dri, log savers, etc. 


Anyways, I was wondering how the big boys kept all them anchorseal drums around if they are no good after freezing

We're right at 32 this morning also.  Haven't seen ice in the puddles yet.
Just starting to think about acting like Winter.
I wonder if I've got the antifreeze kind.  It stays indoors just in case.

I've just started a week of work with a 30,000lb excavator to clear stumps, expand the sawmill pad, dig a big pile of free gravel, expand the firing ranges and straighten out a few corners on our trail that the log trailer barely clears.  Judging by the progress in just 2 hours last night...it's going to be a great week!

Just had a customer call on an existing order of 2mbf white oak and ask me to anchor seal the log ends before I saw them.  He said he would pay for 1/3 of the 55gal drum.  So I just called anchorseal and ended up ordering a 5 gal pail instead just because I dont wanna sink a bunch of money into anhorseal when were enteringthe season where we wont need it.  So my question is, if I spray it on, do you think 5 gallons will coat 2,000 bdft?

I got the "winter blend" from them, they mix it that way no extra charge for 5gal pail, and for 55 gal drum it only adds $20,000
