Default G4 Sealant Smell

I built two 5.5x3x3 vivs out of plywood in march and sealed them with 3 coats of G4 in early April.

Waited until the smell had gone in the garage where they were built then moved them inside. Since then, they have not stopped smelling. I've blasted heaters inside them, had large fans circulating air out the windows and still if I leave the doors and windows closed for 15 minutes, the room smells.

The tanks are still empty as I'm not risking putting anything living in there yet.

Things I've tried:
- fan heater inside the tanks pushing it to 45c inside the tanks
- heat and lights on permanently with large fan circulating air with windows open
- spray down tanks to increase humidity

Anyone have any experience with this?

I've used G4 loads of times and never had this,once dry no smells,did you shake the tin well before use?
If it's dry I don't understand where the smell is coming from

Yeah, I'm not sure either. Tin was shaken, but i can't remember how vigorously.

Ive has the heat off and windows closed for the last 6 hours so going to see what it's like later as I'd really like to get them filled...
