I'm thiking either 2 things happened, 1 is that when I used the stuff some of the solid stuff in it got clumped and I just sort of pushed only the liquid out (like liquid through a cheesecloth or sponge), or the stuff went bad (i always cover it, only used it twice...).

Like I got half a tube, and it's all just like powder. It doesnt even really seem dried out, it just seems like the powder stuff or something. Maybe I should RMA? I mean this is a serious jip...

I unplugged it, i pull the plunger all the way back, and I can just shake it around, just clumps/powder stuff. When I pull a bit out with the needle... it's all just sort of fine powder. I've only had it a few months, surely others have a similar experience?

I haven't myself.
I would contact CL about it tbh - doesn't sound right.

I should call 911.

Think he means taking the top off, not beheading.

Just looked a partial tube of liquid pro that is a couple months old & it is still liquidy. Was the cap tight on yours?

Here's Pics:

I push and I push but I can't get it out!



Then I pull back on the plunger, and it's still all clumped as above.. I use a needle to push it around (or, if I didn't squeeze too hard, I can just tap the syringe)



And I push again

of course, always tight. I would always put it in the original packaging as well, and you can't really put it in there without the cap being tight. This actually was an issue the last time I used the stuff too, but enough liquid came out that I was able to finish the application and figured that the next time I needed to use the stuff, I'd use a needle to unplug it and it'd surely be fine.

I feel like some sort of cheesecloth affect occurred. I mean I don't want to go after Coolaboratory if it's not their fault, but is this an issue of a faulty product, or user error (did i forget to shake it before every use or something?).

And what happens if you do forget the cap? Is the stuff prone to drying out? If this is an affect of drying out, then there must be user error and that's that and maybe I just didn't put the cap on tight enough (i really doubt that, I work with syringes at my job...). So just curious if anyone has had this happen to them. But there is nothing on the box about the stuff drying out or needing to be capped, and at one of my jobs we just had tons of different pastes sitting around with no caps or partially topped and they never dried out (i'd never treat my own paste like that of course, but coworkers would and well if you have 20 tubes of mx-4 and as5 and nothing bad happens...)

ugh this sucks, there was a reason I pulled it out ;/

I didn't know if the cap on or off would make a difference, if the cap was on yours doesn't look like it matters.
This is the first time I've had liquid TIM sitting in the syringe, had no idea it could dry out. I should probably use up the rest sooner than later just in case...

So the verdict.... shoot it up before it dries out? If I inject enough CLP maybe I can become Wolverine.

I have a couple of old tubes of Pro and Ultra, all still liquidy.

My buddy gave me a tube of some different German LM TIM. It just says "Paste LM" 1.0 Gramm and the rest is in German. Looks identical to the CL Pro.


Edit: And I just look off the cap and tried to squeeze a little out to check the consistency and it sprayed all over my keyboard and monitor, nice!

Good news!

Seems like my set of LMP/LMU arrived without any trouble to my city and amazingly it did in less than 2 weeks all the way from Germany to México using registered mail specool.gif



It hasn't been delivered to my office yet, but it is sitting on a temporary P.O. Box at the Mail Office that corresponds to that zip code.

I'll check in the morning if it has been already sent to the office or if it keeps sitting in the P.O. Box, and then depending about what the tracking history says perhaps I'll have to personally pick it up and end my cravings biggrin.gif
