I have pint and quart cans of Aero Gloss from the 60's that are older than I am that are full, and totally good for use. The cans of Sanding Sealer and Balsa Fillercoat I use most are from the late 70's/early 80's.

I found over the years old Pactra dope did not ply well with the newer Midwest Pactra Dope. The formula has changed several times over the years.
