What is the impact of exposing triton to air?As stated on the manufacturer’s label, “store under nitrogen to avoid degradation, which causes undesirable odor and color." Unfortunately, the exact reaction or degradation mechanism is not known to us. Typically though, we don’t see any issues within the 1 year time frame.
