The fully automated coil coating process is computer controlled throughout all the stages.
Coating quality is tested according to the standards established by the ECCA ( European Coil Coating Association)of which 3A Composites GmbH in Germany is a member.
The long-term durability of coatings can be compared by measuring:
- Color change
- Gloss retention
The superiority of Ultra – cote UV resistant lacquer systems (PVDF）is shown in the three graphs.
The values indicated are taken from tests conducted by the American Coil Coating Association (NCCA) on lacquered surfaces which were exposed to the extreme climatic conditions of South Florida for several years.
