Helmsman Semi-Gloss Polyurethane

I use a good bit of the Helmsman Semi-gloss polyurethane but small amounts at a time. I have been using Argon gas to keep the product from solidifying. However, use of the Argon gas seems diminish the gloss. Would like some suggestions as how to extend the self life of the polyurethane. Thank you

Pour it into a smaller container hence less air.

Not sure why argon would have any effect on the gloss. It is, after all, a noble gas: inert (non-reactive with any compounds, at least under all but extraordinary conditions).
