Technical note
Technical note
Results reported here relate to changes over time of physical, visual and sensory measures, providing guidance as to the anticipated shelf life of each component and the ability of products to meet the warranty requirement that components remain suitable for use following up to 24 months storage at 30 °C. Recommendations to ensure such compliance are made..
