Iriodine® 6163 WAY has an inorganic coverage of its TiO2 surface which hinders photoactivity. Iriodine® 6163 WAY weathering resistance is tested using accelerated testing in a weather chamber with xenon light at elevated temperatures, where irrigation and light exposure alternate.

Photoactivity is an indication of the catalytic activity of the TiO2 surface which leads to degradation of the polymer matrix.
