spri primer shipping question, clear gooo on containers

Hey guys

Just got my quarts of SPI epoxy primer. 2 of the quarts I got have some weird clear good around the rim. It basically looks like a clear silicon. I got some on my fingers and it was really hard to clean off (had to scrape it). It is not colored, so it isn't the primer, but what would it be? Any reason to worry about the primers??

Thanks!
mike

Contact SPI and report it. Find out what they say. Was it leaking out of the box?

the catalyst for the epoxy is clear or like an amber color. could be a little of that. i wouldn't worry about it. the epoxy inside should be just fine.

the activator was in a separate box, none seemed to leak. this is only around the primer quarts, I was hoping barryK would be around soon, probably faster to get in touch with him here :p

it is not liquid, it is a gel (glue) type of substance.

I'm more worried about getting it in my primer while I open it.

Thanks,
Mike

Its glue they use for the boxes.... I know they are taped too... It is on every shipment I get.... dont sweat it, your products are not leaking out

I have never ordered the stuff, so I don't know what it is. What I would do though, is clean the top of the cans really good before opening them. You might try some lacquer thinner for that.

Thanks for the heads up.
This is an automated process and we cannot see inside the box once glued.
Had this problem two years ago when we went to a waterborne glue and thought had problem solved but may be on all or could be isolated case.
It is being checked as we write, thanks.
