DuraShield KPE gained TUV & UL approval. So did the
competitors. Look what happened after 2000 hours…

Market leading competitor’s backsheet yellows drastically
after aging test of 2000 hours of damp heat.
DuraShield KPE is more reflective and more effective than the
competitor’s leading product.

According to relevant data, 1 year in Florida direct sunshine is ~956 hours in these test
conditions. Backside not directly exposed to sunlight, it will typically see ~15-20% from direct
light. Taking this factor into account, ~5000 hours safely simulate 25 years
