chip components (i.e. inductor, capacitor & resistor) more than 2 years from packaging can still be used?? | 23 May, 2014

hi everyone, I just got some question with regards to the life span of components from the date it was packed from supplier. Does the parts more than 2 years from the date it was process by supplier: 1. Can it still be used in PCBA?? 2. will it not react during reflow soldering? 3. what are the evaluation needed to confirm this?

What I have known is that: 1. it's solderability will be needed to check.. 2. the peel strength of tape also needed to be check if has no problem..

Got any advise on this situation? tnx.

I have not seen expiration date on parts so far. I have seen people uses 10 year old parts too as long as it solders good.
