i use it quite a lot to cement onlays but find it doesn't reach a gel state even after 5 minutes.

i tend to light cure for 6-7 seconds and remove the excess. is this ok ?

any plans of a faster setting material?

Is it cold? Is it expired?

Yes it's OK if you prefer.

Yes. Injectafil is on the way.

I had trouble getting Anchor to set today.
Patient had decay under a crown. I was able to pop the crown off (a PFM), clean out the decay and it may need a root canal and new crown, but the tooth was asymptomatic and there was nothing obvious periapically on the X-Ray. I decided just to do a crown build up and re-cement the crown and see how that worked.
I placed bonding agent on the tooth, etched the inside of the crown and thought I would just seat the crown with Anchor. Problem was the Anchor never would set. After about 10-15 minutes, I gently pulled the crown off. The Anchor was in a soft gel state and I light cured it. I trimmed it a bit with a high speed and cemented the crown with Rely-R-X.
I thought Anchor set up a bit quicker than that. How long does it normally take to set without light curing it?
