EVALUATION OF INTERIOR AND EXTERIOR LATEX PAINTS

A search for better latex paints is being made. Exposure tests of twenty-four latex paints on concrete and wood are in progress. X-ray techniques have been used in following changes in apparent film thickness of thin films of latex paints on wood in outdoor exposure and on wood and aluminum in weatherometer exposures. Rankings of the paints have been made on the bases of light reflectance, color change, chalking and apparent loss of film thickness as they exist at present. /FHWA/
