How do you know when pot life has expired? Can you extend pot life and, if so, how?

From Erik Andreassen of TLC Modular on May 27, 2021:
Subject to the mixing ratio of the product being observed, follow the recommendations of the coating manufacturers guidelines on the PDS. If solvent is added in an attempt to extend the potlife, then the formulation is being destroyed.

From mohamed okaz of f.p.s on May 25, 2021:
when the paint become start to be jelly , this is indication of pot life reach to be finish , we cannot extend the pot life , some applicator add thinner to the paint , but it is technically wrong , but we can keep the pait good if we keep it in low temperature
