are they changing the formula? I buy Devcon 2 Ton in syringes at Walmart and in some of the recent packs, the hardener seems to be more yellow than usual and has a distinct fishy amine smell (similar to the Devcon 5 min epoxy) that I did not notice in other batches of 2 Ton the past several years. Anybody else experience this, or am I just getting senile? The mixed epoxy also seems a bit thicker than before. If Devcon is changing formulas, this is not a good thing.

The yellow color comes with age, I have noticed the same thing with stores that do not move alot of product. I only purchase from the Sears Hardware store as they replenish their stocks quite frequently

Interesting, I have never noticed this. Probably never really paid attention. Another Devcon fact for the old head. But I will tell you that since the weather is getting colder, Devcon will start to thicken. You will start to notice this as the temp drops below 70degs. in the room that you apply it in.
