    plastic container for vulcanizing fluid

    I run tubeless tires but like to carry a safe variety of tire plugs, extra sealant, tubes, and rema patches/vulcanizing fluid to cover all possible flatting scenarios. Has anyone made their own "tubes" of Rema vulcanizing fluid for extended trips. I'm talking something other than the little metal tubes that always seem to puncture and dry up in your bag. I have a large jar of fluid, and I transferred some into a plastic vial. I'm just wondering if the vulcanizing fluid will eventually melt the plastic.
    The vial seems a bit softer after sitting filled for a day, but it still seems fine. I'd rather be able to refill my own little containers(bigger than the ones that come in patch kits) than rely on the little metal tubes
    Has anybody else tried this?

    Why not just put the metal tubes inside something more robust, like a small metal cylinder?
