These rods have an unlimited shelf life and do not require special warehouse conditions, provided they are handled with care and the foil is not damaged. VacPac also helps eliminate damage during shipping compared to metal cans, which can get dented in transit, compromising the quality of the electrodes. The safe exposure time for these electrodes is 12 hours after opening the VacPac with the foil left in place. For optimal security, it is recommended to take out only one electrode at a time.
