Re: UV damage

Cool Larry,

So care to elaborate on the "Tests that I have seen show that it takes
about 5mm of UV protecting paint over the whole surface." test data who,
what, where?

I see that you have a new gig selling paint? Now that you insinuated that
our airplanes are getting UV damage under the paint what is your agenda? The
sky is falling and plastic airplanes that do not have PTI paint are slowly
turning to dust?

Please clarify your input on UV damage.

5mm (~.200 inches) are you lucid?

[0.1969 to be precise) Passed lab testing with top grade test equipment
( by a technical college) exposing painted epoxy part to heat, rain, and
UV equivalent to 10 years outdoors on a Florida ramp. This is with
specific paint produced by PTI ( a mil spec aircraft paint company). The
paint was applied to a specially prepared mold, and the fiberglass was
then vacuum infused to the finish in a test program. The result was an
extremely light weight simulated wing skin that demonstrated 95%
reflectivity. Work is on going to demonstrate both how thin the paint
can safely be done, and to create a usable full scale airfoil that comes
out of the mold pre painted that matches the best current paint job. We
expect to be ready by Spring 2012.
