Title: Weathering of white external PVC-U

Ref Code: DG440
Authors: C Newman

Abstract1: PVC-U is one of the most widely used plastics materials for building components but compared with other materials used in the construction industry, it is relatively new. This Digest describes the weathering qualities of self coloured PVC-U used externally. White is by far the most common colour for most applications, having the advantage over dark colours of remaining much cooler in strong sunshine.
