I sent an email to Reaper asking about how long the paint lasts, and was told that as long as I add a drop or two or water a year, it should keep indefinitely. Didn't think to ask about temperature, but my house isn't insulated, so gets hot in the summer and cold in the winter, and I've had no problems. I have some RMS paints that were displayed in full sun at my FLGS, and I haven't had problems with them. (The line didn't move, so the paint was drastically marked down.)

 

I think they recommend not allowing them to freeze, but not sure about the max temp. My house can get up over 90 in the summer.

More anecdotal evidence here, two summers ago we had our central air go out and have to be repaired during a heatwave, and for 3 days my house was riding high at about 115 degrees day and night without cooling down. We live upstairs in a an older duplex in a very hot area.

 

Needless to say I couldn't paint during the heat, but out of curiosity I checked my paints to see how they were holding up and they seemed fine (I have an obsession with paint). I still use those paints to this day and nothing has changed really at all about them that I can tell.

 

For what it's worth.

 

*edit to mention that I'm talking about my MSP's here, since that's the topic at hand, to be clear.

Just FYI to anyone interested, I have RMS paints, Reaper Pro Paints, Vallejo, GW, and a smattering of other brands. Nothing seems to have been affected. Not even that ancient bottle of Elmer's white glue that's been kicking around for the past century.
