1. This Warranty applies if any of the following Warranty Conditions occurs:
a. Within 40 years from the date of application of the paint, WeatherXL exhibits cracking, flaking or peeling (loss of adhesion) to an extent that is apparent on ordinary outdoor visual observation. Minute fracturing, which may occur in proper fabrication of the building parts, is not a covered Warranty Condition. Failure due to substrate corrosion is not a covered Warranty Condition.
b. Within 30 years from the date of installation of the panels, WeatherXL:
i. Chalks in excess of ASTM D-4214 method A number six (6) rating on horizontally installed (roofing) panels and a number eight (8) rating on vertically installed (sidewall) panels, when properly maintained as described herein, and
ii. Changes color more than seven (7.0) Hunter delta-E units on horizontally installed (roofing) panels and five (5.0) Hunter delta-E units on vertically installed (sidewall) panels as determined by ASTM method D-2244. Color change shall be measured on an exposed painted surface that has been cleaned of surface soils and chalk, and the corresponding values measured on the original or unexposed painted surface. Color changes may not be uniform on surfaces that are not equally exposed to the sun and elements and Valspar does not warrant that color changes will be uniform.
2. If a Warranty condition occurs and the other requirements of this Warranty are met, Valspar will supply you with the following Warranty benefits:

Valspar does not warrant the use of WeatherXL coil coatings with non-Valspar coatings. Warranty Benefits are available only for all-Valspar coating systems. Also, because some colors may not meet our standards, Valspar will inform you in writing at the time of color matching if the color you have selected is not an approved color.

f. WeatherXL which has been damaged due to moisture entrapment in coils and/or bundles during transit or storage or which has been stored or installed in such a way that allows standing water on the coating;
g. Failures or damage resulting from corrosion at cut/bare edges or failure of the metal substrate;
h. Development of any other condition between the coating and the substrate which causes the coating to degrade or delaminate, including any failure or deficiency in the cleaning process or pretreatment;
i. WeatherXL that has been stored/installed in such a way that allows contact with animals or animal waste.
j. Mishandling of WeatherXL or of any substrate coated with it, including abuse, alteration, modification, improper use, or storage;
