AbstractFive types of priming paint and a wash primer were applied to steel panels in order to observe their performance under different climatic conditions. The panels primed were exposed to the elements for up to ten consecutive years at the outdoor test sites of the Division of Building Research at various locations across Canada. Six panels were prepared for each test site, three of which were topcoated with a grey alkyd enamel. The panels were removed at regular intervals and returned to the laboratory for examination. They were examined for general appearance, amount of dirt collection and the degree of gloss, chalking, rusting and blistering. The report describes the performance of the different types of paints, the preparation of the panels and the formulations for the paints used.
