Does Paint Expire?

Glidden Team:
Does paint expire or have a specific shelf life?

Sr. Product Manager and PPG Paint Specialist: 
When stored properly, an unopened can of latex or oil-based paint should have a shelf life of 2 years. The best storage for paint is in a cool, dry area, away from extreme hot and cold temperatures. Paint should never be allowed to freeze and should be stored away from furnaces and other heat-generating appliances.
