Simulate 'sun and rain' detail how nanoparticles can escape from plastic coatings into the environment

Researchers describe how they subjected a commercial nanoparticle-infused coating to methods for accelerating the effects of weathering from ultraviolet radiation and simulated washings of rainwater. Their results indicate that humidity and exposure time are contributing factors for nanoparticle release, findings that may be useful in designing future studies to determine potential impacts.
