Anyone know the shelf life of Glyptal 1201? I have a barely used quart of it 8 years old. Got ready to paint the mag coil frame and read on a blog that it has a 2 year shelf life. Nothing about shelf life on the can, nothing on the mfrs website or any other place I look. Have a call in to the mfr, but its Saturday and the soonest they will respond is Monday. I'd like to paint the coil frame this weekend if I can, so I need to know if the can I have is still good.

The manufacturer wants you to throw it away and buy more every 2 years. My experience is that a can of Glyptal is good for 20 years if you keep it sealed when not in use.

I have used some that is 15 to 20 years old and it worked fine.

After having the paint can open to the air, I squirt some wine preserver into it as I cap the lid. This helps keep the paint from solidifying, especially for the one-part air curing paints like Glyptal or POR 15.

Richard, if is has not set up in the can you're good to go. When you close it back up, place a piece of plastic bag between the can and lid. It will seal better and be much easier to open next time.
