Product application limits are determined by exposure to natural UV radiation. KOMATEX tolerates exposure up to 140 kly/cm2/year, which is equivalent to UV radiation experienced in Madrid, Spain.
When used outdoors, PVC sheets are subjected to temperature fluctuations.
The coefficient of linear thermal expansion
The change in length under varying conditions can be computed as follows:
The basic temperature to be taken for computing this figure is the installation temperature. An increase in temperature results in expansion, a decrease in temperature results in contraction. Sheet contraction is based on the lowest outside temperature according to the climatic zone map.
KOMATEX will expand and contract depending on fluctuations in temperature. In areas where this product is subjected to 140°F or greater, permanent dimensional damage will result from the softening of the plastics. The use of dark paint or the standard colors other than white is not recommended for outdoor applications. Dark colors have a tendency to absorb more heat, thus increasing the potential for damage.
