The shelf life of cyanoacrylate glues (and epoxies) can be extended by storing them at lower temperatures; -20°C. At lower temperatures, the adhesive becomes very viscous and the speed of chemical reactions is practically reduced to zero. It will keep the adhesive stable for years. Before use, let the adhesive thaw with the container sealed to avoid condensation into the adhesive.
