AbstractPaint films, on exposure to weathering, undergo deterioration and eventual breakdown which may be characterized visually by yellowing, loss of gloss, chalking, cracking, blistering or peeling. Many investigations have been made in efforts to find ways of improving the durability of paints. Most of these have been empirical in nature and have not contributed greatly to a knowledge of the basic degradation processes. The present study, primarily concerned with the performance of house paints, was designed to develop a better understanding of the degradation reactions.
