As long as you have not opened the cans it is indefinite. Store in a warn spot like your closet..I have some that has been around a long time and is still good..

if you have concerns then mix a sample and shoot a test spot to see that it cures..

I have tried most all of it and now do what is known to work..

Just stir it real good. The solids will settle on the bottom and get so hard you'll have to tape two paddles together (because one will break) to get it stirred back up but it'll be fine.I always stir it up and let it sit a while then stir it up again before I mix it.

Like dbm says. I store my paint upside down most the time. When I open it the solids being on top are a good reminder to stir stir stir.

I've sprayed some of my 2k last summer, and sprayed more of it this summer...same gallon. I store it in a cool dry cellar at all times. I gotta say I have been wondering this question too, just never got around to calling Barry about it, partly because I was afraid of the answer!

Am also wondering how long the Epoxy is good for.
