Shelf Life for Hardner and Primer Cataylst

How long does this stuff last after it's been opened? I have to redo my spoiler because the color match was off. It's been almost 4 weeks ago.

It'll last a long time. I have opened cans that are over a year old. You will know when it goes 'bad' 'cause it will be a solid chunk at the bottom of the can!

I'm not going to say exactly as some seem to last longer than others.
One thing that helps is to replace the cap tight right after using,Don't let it sit open as your mixing and shooting.
Besides the chunk, it will "seed" which as described will look like seed's in it.
If it looks OK, It usually is. Being a month,if it hasn't been opened much,you should be good to go. Mix it up and spray a test piece and see before shooting the good part/panel,You'll know in a short time if it's OK.

A good thing to do to make paint last longer is to put the can upside down once when you are storing it. Juist make sure to close the top really tight or it will fall on the floor. I have put some gallons of paint like that 1 year ago and they still seems to be really good.

When you put it that way, the paint seals the opening and no air can get in. My uncle told me that trick a couple years ago and I am really thankful to him .
