Default Do Blackgates age?

Has anyone had experience with what happens to Black Gate capacitors over time? Do they age and leak like normal capacitors? What happens after 5 years? 8 years? 10 years?

Thanks!

Probably! Doesn't the datasheet say something about the lifetime?

Since they are manufactured by Rubycon I'll the likelyhood is pretty good that there are datasheets.
