Whether Your Paint Weathers Well...


 
Looking at exterior weathering is one aspect of paint durability. "Exterior rating" systems vary by industry and manufacturer. Here is how GOLDEN rates and reviews weatherability:  
 
GOLDEN staff members prepare sets of three panels for an exterior durability test. The first set remains in dark storage for the duration of the testing and the second set also remains in New Berlin, NY facing feet of snow in December and scorching sun in August on the test fence featured in the photo. The third and last set is sent to a testing facility in South Florida where the samples are subjected to heat, uv exposure, humidity and storms. 
 
 
 
The test samples are collected, reviewed and evaluated at the end of the testing period, usually one year of exposure but sometimes longer. Results are then published in our technical data sheets. 
 
 
The Proceed line of products are still under evaluation for exterior weatherability. Please contact us if you have any questions about any aspect of our products!
