See the EVERSHIELD® difference for yourself
EVERSHIELD® exterior Flat and Velvet paints outperform the competition when it comes to resistance to water intrusion. A thicker water bead indicates a greater degree of protection against moisture intrusion, meaning the substrate and/or paint film is less likely to be susceptible to mildew and other contaminants.
Paint is applied side-by-side on a black Leneta scrub panel using a 6 mil Bird film applicator. Allow the samples to dry at room temperature. Apply .5 ml of room temperature tap water to the film by lightly touching the surface of the coating with the end of a disposable pipette. Wait five minutes and then take eye-level pictures of the beads.
Dirt Pick-Up Resistance Test
EVERSHIELD® outperforms competitors in its resistance to dirt. When exterior paints are subjected to heat from the sun, they can become soft and tacky, allowing dirt to stick to the film. EVERSHIELD® Eggshell, Low Sheen, Semi-Gloss, and Gloss paints provide better dirt pick-up resistance, meaning your painted surfaces will look newer longer.
Paint is applied to aluminum panels and allowed to dry at room temperature for seven days. A layer of black iron oxide slurry is applied to the bottom half of the panel and allowed to dry at room temperature for two hours. To accelerate testing, the panels are placed in an oven at 120° F for two hours to further dry the slurry on the paint film. The panels are cooled and washed under cold tap water. The amount of slurry that remains on the panel is the dirt pick-up.
Gloss Retention Test
While all paints lose their luster over time due to exposure to harmful UV rays, lower-quality paints will dull much sooner than higher grade paints. EVERSHIELD® Low Sheen, Semi-Gloss and Gloss paints retain their gloss long after the competition.
Gloss Retention Test Method: One coat of ULTRA-GRIP® Premium primer and one coat of paint were applied to aluminum panels. To accelerate testing, they were exposed to UV light for 600 hours in an accelerated weathering machine. 60 degree gloss measurements were made using a gloss meter both before and after exposure testing. Gloss retention is calculated by dividing the gloss of the paint after exposure by the initial gloss of the unexposed paint multiplied by a factor of 100.
