UV Weathering

uv weathering

Materials and coatings' performance can deteriorate under the combined effect of solar UV radiations, temperature and moisture.

ATS has the capacity to perform accelerated weathering test through the use of fluorescent UV chambers. This technique simulates the effects of sunlight in the short wavelength portion of the solar spectrum.

Whether the evaluation criteria is based on visual properties (color change, gloss, haze, optical transmission) or structural properties (impact resistance, tensile strength, abrasion), ATS has the capabilities to simulate a wide variety of weathering applications and requirements.

ATS' chambers offer controlled conditions of temperature, condensation and duty cycle of the sunlight exposure, all captured in a digital format.

Standard specimens are 3”x6” and should be flat. Other dimensions can be tested.
