Old Primer
« on: November 9, 2017, 07:16:13 PM »
I found a few cans of unused primer at my Dads office but they are from 2007. I sprayed some cardboard and it appears to be fine but I just thought I would see if primer has an expiration date since these are so old.

I dont think they do. I've got cans of Army Painter that I bought 7 years ago and they are still working just fine. Just give them a good shake, test them on a crappy model and you should be good to go.

Yeah, I think they'll be fine. The only risk is from some sort of separation in the can. 3-4 solid minutes of shaking after being left in a warmish (so house, not garage) environment should do them wonders.

I've never had an issue with cans of primer I've had sitting around for 3-4 years although only had a few last that long
