Specifications: Windsor Faux Panels®

Product Description:
Barron Designs Inc.'s masons and master craftsmen have created products that are the ideal combination of stone textures and sizes, melding them artistically into an extremely easy to install paneling system. Windsor products are intended as a light weight veneer wall panel system, providing a very realistic "rock wall" appearance. These products are intended for either interior or exterior application over masonry, wood framed, or metal framed construction, be it residential or commercial. Our products have been engineered as such that no additional structural or foundation support is required.

Limitations:
Windsor products are intended as wall coverings only and should not be used as pavers or subjected to foot traffic nor do they add to the structural load bearing capacity of the substrate to which they are applied. Windsor products should not be used below water level such as in ponds, bird baths, or swimming pools. Avoid installing in locations which will be repeatedly subjected to industrial "weed whackers".

Paint Test Data

Barron Designs Inc. has conducted extensive testing on it's proprietary coating system. The details and results of the testing are as follows:

Windsor Panels Hardness/Adhesion Test

Test Purpose:
The hardness adhesion of the coating to the substrate depends on the process of finishing the substrate, film thickness, and drying of the coating. The "Uni" pencil is used to test the hardness of the coating and the cross cut test to check its adhesion

Test Condition:
Hardness test: Place the "uni" pencil into the hardness test scale at an angle of 45°, adjust the tested film touched by the test scale and pencil at the same level, push the scale evenly to make the pencil slide on the film 5-8 cm, then rub the pencil scratchby erasure to check whether there is any scratch. The hardness measured by the pencil has 17 grades as follows: 9H, 8H, 7H, 6H, 5H, 4H, 3H, 2H, H, F, HB, B 2B, 3B, 4B, 5B, and 6B. 9H is the hardest and 6B is the softest. The sprayed film should be tested after thoroughly dry. It is necessary to record the time needed for the drying of the film. The hardness test scale is shown below.

Adhesion Test: Hold the artist knife with the sharp point on the test film at an angle on 35-45° and cut the film into the substrate of the coating for a cross hatch of the film. Cut 100 10 cm squares. Apply transparent tape to the film to be tested, and then rapidly pull off the tape to check the adhesion of the coating film.

Test Results:
Minimum hardness requirements based on anticipated use were met. Required class for adhesion was met.

Windsor Panels Xenon Test

Test Purpose:
In the natural environment, the factors of temperature, humidity, sunlight and oxidation, chain rupture may occur resulting in the color, gloss, hardness, adhesion, and bendability of the coating being changed. We can use air exposure or the artificially accelerated aging test to test the weathering resistance of the film. Due to the lengthy time required for the air exposure test and the poor reproducibility of the test results (due to area differences), we use the arc artificial accelerated aging test.

Test Condition:
Cold air arc lamp
Radioactive bombardment: 50.6WM² (300-400 NM)
Temperature of Black Plate 63+/-3°C
Relative humidity: 50 +/- 55RH
Cycle time of spray: 18 mins spraying per 120 mins
After testing for a certain time and accumulated radiation, we check for color and gloss difference visually and by grayscale. We also check ΔE with a color difference meter.
The test conditions comply with the following standards: ISO11341:1994, ASTM G26, JIS B-7754, CNS 11232. The spectral picture of sunlight spectrum and arc lab is below.

Test Results:
No evidence of surface deterioration, film shrinkage, objectionable color or gloss change, delamination, edge lifting, cracking, pitting, blistering or other degradation.

Windsor Panels Salt Spray Test

Test Purpose:
After metal is finished by electroplating it will display bubbling, disintigration, and rusting due to salt spray (fog). This is especially true when the product is used around the seaside, at the beach, and in industrial districts which have high strength salt spray (fog).

Test Condition:
Salt Spray (fog) Strength: 5% (W/V)
Salt Spray (fog) PH value: 6.5-7.2
Spray Fog Pressure: 1.00-+/-0.01 kgf/cm²
Spray Fog Amount: 1.0-2.0 ml/80 cm²/h
Temperature of pressed drum: 35 +/-1°C
Temperature in Lab: 47 +/-1°C
Relative Humidity in Lab: 85%
The test conditions comply with the following standards: GB/T 1771-1991, ISO7253-1996, CNS 10757 K6801

Test Results:
Maximum level of lifting was not exceeded.

Windsor Panels Hot/Cold Cycle Test

Test Condition:
The film can be influenced by changes in temperature, humidity, sunlight, and other factors. The test is to insure that the film does not crack, blush, lose gloss, adhesion or flexibility.

Test Purpose:
The process for the hot/cold cycle test is as follows: The total cycle time is 5-10 cycles. The sample is put at a constant temperature of –20°C for two hours and then at 50°C constant temperature for two hours. The sample is then visually inspected for cracks, blistering, etc.

Test Results:
No cracking, blistering, etc. was observed.

Windsor Panels QUV Test

Test Condition:
The film coating and fading of the sample panel are tested under UV light with 313 nm wave length so as to assess the accelerated exposure situation produced in the usage process. It can also be provided as the reference for designing the finishing system for quality control. The test is quick and not influenced by weather and it's results are highly accurate.

Test Purpose:

  1. Place the sample panel in the QUV test machine and expose for some time.
  2. Use MEINENGDA computerized machine which can measure any color difference or visually test the color difference values before and after exposure. Assess the UV resistance of the sample panel according to the color difference.
  3. What the color difference result means is as follows: Δ1 : black and white color difference Δa: red and green color difference Δb: yellow and blue color difference ΔE: Total color difference ΔE=(ΔL²+Δa²+Δb²)½
  4. The test condition complies with the revalant rules in ISO11507

Test Results:
No color change was observed.
