A number of physical and chemical analyses of protective coatings are being conducted to determine their storage stability for a duration of three years. Of the 52 coating components reported, only a few were found to fail as the result of developing an unacceptable condition in container, but all changed in viscosity, nonvolatile contents, and drying time in varying degree during the three-year storage period. There are some indications that the two-component systems are more susceptible to aging than the one-component systems.
