The air in your refrigerator is very dry.

I've never understood what the refrigeration is supposed to do.
CA loves water vapor - any H2O molecules will start 'spoiling' it. (CA was originally invented for
fast closure of soldiers' wounds in combat.) So storing it in a Tupperware with DESSICANT may help!
I recently transferred a fresh Zap bottle to a Tamiya bottle. Tamiya plastic caps are utterly airtight in my
experience. (I store all kinds of stuff in them from contact cement to canopy glue to MEK and Acetone.)
I don't know how well the Zap will keep in the Tamiya bottle, but I will find out.

My experience with ACC is that it does go bad. I never had luck with the big bottles, even refrigerated. They went bad.
I buy packs of the little tubes from big box stores, because they cycle thru quickly, and are fresh. If one goes bad, I open a new one.
Does the ACC still work on other stuff? Does a new bottle work?
