AbstractIt is the aim in this work to choose and study both separately and in relation to each other those properties that are believed to play an important role in determining the durability of a paint applied to an exterior wood surface. These are adhesion, tensile strength and elongation, water absorption, swelling, and permeability not only in the original state of a freshly applied coating but also after a period of curing equivalent to natural weathering. The relation between these properties has been examined and the behaviour of the paints applied entirely by themselves as well as in systems consisting of a priming coat differing from the top coats, in both cases subjected to some of the conditions that may prevail during the use of a paint.
