It does not irritate the skin or mucous membranes and can be kept almost indefinitely if stored in a dry place.

Hours, the melt occurs when heated to approx. 50-60 ° C. The heating should be done by indirect heating in a water bath.

This depends on the viscosity of the glue.
Shelf life: When stored in a dry place, bone glue can be kept indefinitely.
