Evaluation of Coating Materials Using Accelerated Laboratory Weathering Test Protocol

Study objectives include the following: (1) Conduct accelerated laboratory testing to predict weathering deterioration of coating materials for steel structures. (2) Validate the protocols proposed in the report BE7 (Accelerated Weathering of Traffic Control materials by Laboratory Testing, FDOT February 2020) to generate laboratory results that can be used to validate and demonstrate the use of advanced laboratory weathering testing as an approval requirement in coating materials specifications.
