This conference will establish the current state of service life prediction methodologies and produce the roadmap for future technical, standards, and commercial needs for polymer containing materials exposed to outdoor weathering. This conference builds on the success of the previous on Service Life Prediction meetings held in 20162013, 2006, 2004, 1999, and 1997. The results of this meeting will be compiled into a published volume.

All areas of the service life prediction will be addressed including:

  • Advances in Field exposures
  • Advances in Laboratory exposures
  • Challenges related to specific applications (PV, nuclear, wind, construction)
  • Characterization of polymer properties
  • Correlation between Lab. And Field Exposure
  • Effect of coating weathering on substrate corrosion
  • How to Understand Moisture in SLP
  • Industrial needs for service life prediction
  • New Material challenges
  • Progress in validating service life prediction models
  • Reliability and Durability of Polymeric and Nano- Materials
  • Standards needs
