Question: 100 years service Life?


What kind of test results would be required to prove a service life of 100 years for a coating?

What would over
5,000 hours of QUV with over 90% gloss retention and a delta E of less than 2 tell you?

How about
10,000 hours of saltfog with no undercut, creep or corrosion (other than in the scribe mark)?

The answer is no one really knows. All of our test scenarios are base on predicting up to 30 years of service life. When a product has not begun to deteriorate during these tests, what can we predict for service life? This is the problem faced here at 21st Century Coatings, where our FPU™ based WC Series of coatings have achieved those test results.
