Zippertubing’s consumer based products do not necessarily have a shelf-life if the storage for products with adhesive is correctly implemented.
Thank you for purchasing a quality Zippertubing® product. Zippertubing® has been serving customers just like you since 1957, and we provide products to a wide range of industries from aerospace to military and defense. Our quality standards are second to none. We accomplish this by inspecting each product before it leaves our doors or before it hits our distribution channels.

From our standard EMI shielding to our thermal protection products and everything in between, there are certain requirements that will help with the longevity of our consumer-based products.
Zippertubing’s consumer-based products that have adhesive do not necessarily have a shelf life if stored properly. To promote the longevity of your consumer-based Zippertubing® product prior to installation, the following is recommended:
- Never place in direct sunlight
- Store product in a temperature that is 72°F
- Re-seal unused product after use
Adhesive products: Standard consumer-based adhesive products typically have a two-year shelf life after the package has been opened. Once the product is installed, disregard the shelf life as the adhesive has been bonded to the material as intended. For added shelf life of adhesive products, you could use some type of tape (scotch, packaging, etc.) to double seal the products packaging or (if applicable) use a sealing baggie to place the product in.
All Zippertubing® consumer-based products: If you have excess product after your application, place the remaining product in its original packaging and store accordingly to extend its life.
Please use Zippertubing® products as instructed: Visit your specific product’s page on our website for installation instructions, or head on over to our Youtube channel and view the installation video that best suits your needs.
Lastly, never exceed the operating temperature indicated for the product and never use the product in a manner that could disrupt its integrity.
