Simple answer Yes. 

If not stored in an air tight container the air and moisture degrade it's chemical property and efficiency.

Get some air tight barrels and large zip lock bags.

 

I get my Barrels from a local army / government surplus store with screw tight lids and locking rings. I also use a bin bag inside aswell

I aquired a part used sack that had not been properly stored and had dried out, it worked fine. Maybe would have lasted longer if it had been kept properly though.

just out of interest how much resin are you hoping to stockpile? 

Have a word with your supplier they may be able to advise you on correct shelve life and production dating of the product

in my experience resin doesnt go off......its often 4 or 5 months between resin changes with open bags just stored in my outside storage space....its always been fine.....no airtight containers!
