Alkali Burnout Resistance Test

Fresh masonry is likely to contain lime, which is very alkaline (pH greater than 7). If the masonry is not allowed to cure properly, the alkalinity of the surface can attack the integrity of the paint film causing color loss and overall deterioration of the film.

Test Method:
A mixture of cement, lime, and water is made and poured into a pan and allowed to cure for at least 24 hours. It is then removed by turning it upside-down and gently tapping on the pan onto a towel. The concrete block is divided into equal parts (no more than 4 samples per concrete block). One and two coats of each paint sample are applied by brush at equal spread rates and allowed to cure overnight at ambient temperature. The following day, the block is partially submerged inside a water exposure tray and exposed to UV lamps for a minimum of 24 hours or until no more changes to the film are seen. If the sample has poor alkali resistance, it will turn Bright Yellow.

Applied Hide

EVERSHIELD® outperforms the competition in applied hide. Good applied hide ensures that the best hide is achieved when the maximum amount of paint is transferred to the substrate from the application tool.

Test Method:
A 4' x 8' drywall board is primed with a white acrylic primer. After allowing the primer to dry for 24 hours, varied shades of painted black to gray stripes are applied to the primed drywall (evenly spaced). After 24 hours, the first coat is applied to the test boards by roller. After 1 hour dry time, the second coat is applied and the results are evaluated.

Surfactant Leaching Resistance

Surfactant leaching is the migration of water-soluble ingredients of the coating that is caused by exposure to high humidity or moisture. These areas are evident by a change in appearance of the film showing a glossy or soapy/sticky residue on the surface, which can sometimes be brownish in color.

Test Method:
A 3 mil drawdown is cast onto a vinyl chart and left to dry for 4 hours. Five drops of distilled water are placed on two spots and left to sit for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, the panel is tilted to 90º and left to dry on a drying rack overnight. The panel is rated on the degree of any appearance change of the film from 1 (severe) to 5 (no change). The test is also repeated at different cure times to see if it improves with dry time.
