Then the panels will placed outdoors for weather testing for one year. The samples will be cleaned once a week with a clean microfiber towel using water and Meguiar's NXT Generation Car Wash Soap. The test results will be compared to a highly polished raw uncoated Lexan® panel and one panel with the standard scratch resistant coating that comes with the Lexan® sheet.
