Re: Matching Colors

The CB&Q Aurora, Illinois Testing Laboratories were doing paint sample boards like those in the 1880s.   They had to rely on sunlight and snow/rain/ice to weather them.   I wonder if that is why they were called “Q-Panels”???

The technician is not matching paint colors. He is examining painted "Q-Panels" that have been cycled through a UV Weatherometer test machine and/or a salt spray cabinet. The tests accelerate fade and wear characteristics of paint samples.  Regards Jerry Albin
