PROTECTION OF MATERIALS. DEVELOPMENT OF TEST PROCEDURE FOR THE RAPID DETERMINATION OF THE CURABILITY OF PAINT COATINGS. PART II-CHANGES OF PROPERTIES DURING NATURAL WEATHERING
Three carriage paint systems were exposed to natural weathering for two years. During this period measurements were taken to follow the changes in their gloss, colour and mechanical properties. The purpose of this work was to see whether the process of deterioration can be followed by test methods selected in such a way that the service performance of the coat systems can be estimated at an early stage of weathering. Some of the tests e.g. on gloss, colour, hardness and adhesion gave good results whereas others were less satisfactory. The work will be considered in conjunction with experiments based on similar principles and carried out earlier on the same paint systems weathered artificially (see RP 28).
