Old Bottom Paint

I have a couple of quarts of bottom paint (never opened) that have sat for about six years. Assuming that I can shake/stir the paint back to a smooth consistency, should it still be good? The paint is Interlux Micron CSC.

I have called Interlux several times to ask questions about their paint. Interlux has always readily answered my questions on the phone. You might try giving them a call.
I myself don't know the answer to the question.

If it's still in a liquid state it should be OK. I would take it to a paint supplier and have them put it on a shaker for a long while. The copper settles on the bottom and is really hard to get back in solution after sitting for a long tome.

Spilled my last fresh gallon of Intexlux UltraCote while 1/2 way thru the boat bottom.
Found out our EPA no longer allowed it's sale here on the Rock.
Found 2 rusty 1/2 gallons in the yard's paint locker, and used it.
2 yrs later, on haulout, there was no visible difference in hull protection
