Is there a shelf life for the PK49SP spray paint, and how do I read the date code?

Issue:
Is there a shelf life published for PK49SP?

Product Line:
Circuit Breaker Enclosures

Resolution:
The PK49SP does not have a published shelf life. Standard warranty would apply per Square D Conditions of Sale.
There is a date code on the bottom of the can, ie: B0419BHNFPMAX65VOC. The key characters for date identification are the 0419 in the example above. The first three digits indicate the day of the year (041 = 41st day). The fourth digit indicates the year (9 = 1999). Our paint supplier guarantees the product quality for one year from that date. However, Square D Conditions of Sale provides an eighteen month warranty from the date of invoice from Square D or its authorized sales channel.
