World’s Toughest Paint Test
Qualiprotec fluoropolymer coatings pass the Florida test with flying colors.
Florida is internationally recognised as the reference location for paint tests, because the weathering in this US state is realistic and rapid: a year’s sunshine in Miami can correspond to several years’ weathering in other places.
Q-Lab Florida is distinguished by intensive sunshine, high total UV radiation, plenty of rainfall, and very high humidity. In combination this results in a tough climate, ideal for the following tests:
Variation in color
Loss of shine
Loss of mechanical stability
Cracking, flaking, chalking and blistering
Moisture sensitivity of coatings/paints
The highest category of the Florida test is called «AAMA 2605». Products with this quality award have successfully withstood the tough Florida climate for 10 years. That is why Qualiprotec gives a 10-year guarantee.
