xenon Testing

xenon testing
Materials and coatings can be adversely affected by sunlight exposure. ATS has the capacity to perform accelerated weathering tests to reproduce the effects of natural sunlight exposure, directly or through window glass.

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.

The sunlight radiation is created using xenon arc light encased in various filters to tailor the radiation spectrum to a specific application.

Our state of the art xenon arc chambers (Ci4000 and QSun) have the ability to introduce controlled environmental conditions through temperature, humidity and spray exposure.

Standard specimens are 2.5”x5.5”. ATS can accommodate non-flat samples.

ATS satisfies the requirements of many specifications such as ASTM G155, ASTM D2565, ASTM D4459, ASTM D6695, SAE J 2412, SAE J 2527, ISO 4892-2 or MIL-STD-810. All weathering chambers are equipped with data logging software for monitoring throughout the exposures to ensure accurate testing parameters are upheld.
