paint age

I got a gallon of Eko-poly top coat and catalyst about 6 mo. ago, Lot# 2704-6764, it has been sealed and stored indoors and not allowed to freeze. Is this still a good product or will I have trouble using it and matching color when I purchase more.
I would hate to think that $300.00+ is now wasted.

Our products are guaranteed 1 year from purchase unopened and unfrozen. It does say on the label to use within 1 year. Also we try very hard to convince customers not to purchase the paint until they are ready to actually paint. That being said you are within 1 year of purchase so there should be no issues with the paint. Always stir or shake well before using. Mix a small batch and test the paint before using on the airplane. Make sure you don't have a hard crust of tint stuck to the bottom of the can. Make sure the paint does not do weird stuff like turn to cottage cheese after catalyzing, make sure you get a decent 1 hr + pot life. And most importantly make sure it sprays out good.
