Trezona, RI and Hutchings, IM and Weakley, AP (2000) Effect of weathering on the mechanical properties of automotive clearcoats. JOCCA - Surface Coatings International, 83. pp. 580-587. ISSN 1356-0751Full text not available from this repository.
The effect of weathering on the wear resistance of automotive clearcoats has been evaluated. Acrylic-based and urethane-based coatings were exposed in Florida, Belgium and Australia and also under accelerated conditions to SAE J1960 with 0.55 W m -2 borosilicate/borosilicate filtered xenon arc light. Weathering caused a significant reduction in the abrasion and erosion resistance of the clearcoats and large increases in their hardness. Accelerated weathering produced different effects from natural exposure.
