Gel Coat Coloring Agent Shelf Life

I have heard that gel coat has a limited shelf life. Does anyone know if the coloring agents/resins also have a shelf life? I have some that haven't been opened but have been around for 7 years.

Get new ones....they are cheap and tend to solidify in my experience which causes bunches in the gelcoat itself...and also cause alot of swearing.

Good Luck,
