Does EL Wire have a shelf-life?

by deeg on Sun Aug 16, 2020 10:50 pm

I bought some EL wire about 4 years ago and I'm just now getting around to using it. It doesn't seem as bright as it was but maybe my eyes are just getting weaker. ;) They were kept in an enclosed box for most of that time. Does EL wire lose some of its brightness over time even if it's not being used?

It does dim with use. But I am not aware of any degradation during storage.
