2 part epoxy

I've this epoxy where you cut the required amount and kneading it to get a good mix before applying. Problem is there is this green crusty part forming the outer layer of the epoxy like a tube. Not sure if the crust is part of the epoxy. I always inculded it in the mix but finds it tough to knead as the crust breaks into small pieces and is sharp! If I'm not careful the pieces would poke my hands. Am I doing this right?

Trantor--I think the epoxy putty stick is well past it's use-by date. Once the air-tight seal from the maker is opened, the putty stick will only last a few (4-5) months, BTDT...

I have used many. I found the Oatey works the best. Can be found in the plumbing dept at Lowes. I have never had a crusting issue. Kept wrapped up it lasts for at least a year. Epoxy Putty

Re: 2 part epoxy

Your epoxy stick is probably quite old. I have used a piece of wood to knead one of those. If you can get it to mix well (become softer) and start getting warm, it will probably do the job.
