PROTECTIVE PROPERTIES OF COATINGS AS MEASURED BY DEW- CYCLE ACCELERATED WEATHERING

With a new set of test conditions in an accelerated weathering machine, it was possible to determine protective properties of coatings under conditions of cycling light, heat, and humidity and in a salty environment. This salt-dew-cycle test combines the environment of the dew- cycle weather-ometer and of the underrust test. The scribed panels are periodically dipped in salt water, and increased rusting, blistering, and undercutting at the scribe are thereby obtained. ( Author )
