    Photo's and description/list of items for sale:
    I have around 15 or so tubes of Dow Corning 895 for sale in Cape Town. They expire this month (April 2011), so they need to be used soon. Willing to ship.

    It's a neutral cure Alcoxy silicone, similar to Den Braven 795. I've used over 100 tubes building my tank and skylight.

    Cost per tube: R75. If you take them all, I'll consider a discount. ​

    A month or two it's probably still fine. I've used very overdue silicone before (different brand) and basically it just doesn't set.

    In most cases it will just take longer to dry.. but does dry. in extreme expiry cases over 1 year or so after expiry date i wouldent use it.
