I have some older proline 4500, understand it does not age well.

It was tough to pop off the tin, and on the hardener i literally drilled holes to pour it through a lid that will not come off.

It does seem to harden correctly though! If the stuff has gone bad, will there be warning signs (like a poor cure) or will it stealthily result in a bad bond? Hoping for the former but prepared for the latter!

trying over the last week or two got nothing but "Bandwidth exceeded" messages, which IME usually means a third party hosting co has not been paid in far too long

Mix up the can thoroughly. Maybe let it sit in bowl of hot water?

followup -

All signs so far point to proline 4500 taking a few years w/o issue, might take some extra mixing or warming but not particularly different from other epoxies in this regard

Guessing the folks who have had problems were off ratio or poorly mixed, and that would apply equally to fresh glue too
