    I am starting some tiling work and have found a number of part used cement based tile adhesives bags which were left overs from jobs over the years.

    The packs say an expiry of 1 year, but does it really expire? Or can I use them. They look in good state and still power.

    I would bin it, not worth spoiling the job.I have used near the date previously and you can tell it's on it's way off.

    You use it to make up any dips or fill voids before tiling with new stuff.

    Cement certainly expires, & the date they set is usually quite accurate.
