Accelerated Aging Testing

Equipment That Needed Accelerated Aging Analysis

APPLIED TECHNICAL SERVICES PROVIDES A VARIETY OF ACCELERATED AGING TESTING METHODS, ALL PERFORMED TO THEIR INTERNATIONALLY-RECOGNIZED STANDARDS.

Predicting Product Lifespan

Manufacturers need to know the lifespan of their products for any variety of reasons, including industry regulations and quality control. The way they estimate this is by sending a sample to a testing company, like Applied Technical Services, for accelerated aging testing. ATS provides an array of related tests to best meet the needs of our clients.

Accelerated aging is a category of materials testing, not one specific method. What follows is a list of accelerated aging methods that ATS performs to their internationally-recognized standards:


Methods and Standards
  • Xenon Testing
    • Used to simulate damage from one aspect of sunlight radiation over time
    • ASTM G155, SAE J2527, SAE J1885, SAE J2412
    • ASTM D2565, ASTM D4459, ASTM D6695, ISO 4892-2, MIL-STD-810
Methods (continued)
  • UV Weathering
    • Used to simulate damage from the short wavelength portion of sunlight
    • ASTM G154, ISO 11507
  • Temperature/Humidity Cycling and Heat Aging
    • Used to simulate climates of varying temperatures and humidities to determine damage over time
    • Uses heat to rapidly age a sample material and see how long it holds up
    • GM 9505P, IEC 68-2-30, BMW TS 308, PrV303
    • Also performed to related client and industry standards
  • Salt Spray
    • Used to study corrosion/blistering in materials and surface coatings when exposed to high salinity over time
    • ASTM B117, FLTM BI 103, GM 4298P, DIN 50021, ISO 7253
    • DIN EN ISO 9227, ASTM D1654, ASTM D714
