¹ Third-party-certified Wildfire Simulation Testing (SWrI/EDM) of wood poles secured with one and two layers of protective wrap revealed no char or strength loss when engulfed in 12-foot swirling, open flame at temperatures of 2,100°F for a duration of 3 minutes.
² Over 2.5 years of continuous Quantitative Ultra-Violet (QUV) testing, correlating to 30+ years of North American UV exposure, have demonstrated ArmorBuilt’s ability to withstand the damaging effects of long-term UV light exposure. QUV refers to Q-Lab’s line of weathering test machines. The method used is ASTM G 154, Cycle 7, which continuously repeats a cycle consisting of 8-hour UV exposure at 60ºC (140ºF), 15 minutes of water spray and 3.75 hours of condensation (humidity) at 50ºC (122ºF). This test is widely used in the coatings and plastics industries.
