Abstract : This report documents a test program which was conducted to evaluate the rain erosion resistance of selected coated monolithic polycarbonate materials after being subjected to accelerated ultraviolet exposure and to evaluate the effect of exposure duration at 500 mph in a 1 inch/hour rainfall. Tests included: weight loss, haze measurements, percent coating removal and SEM examinations. (Author)
