This is a simulation of the natural conditions using extreme weathering condition to speed up the weathering process and evaluate the impacts on the materials. This testing technique is applied to measure future degradation or corrosion of materials.
What is solar climatic testing? Solar climatic testing is the process of simulating realistic out-door environmental conditions in a natural or accelerated rate within an enclosed chamber. To simulate these conditions, a metal halide bulb is used to produce irradiance levels that correspond with those of the sun. This lamp can produce wavelengths covering notably[…]
The quality and durability of automotive exterior finishes has improved dramatically in the last 20 to 30 years. The dismal corrosion protection performance of the 70’s and 80’s still within the memory of many car owners today. In the past a new car owner, especially those in the North Eastern North America, could consider themselves[…]
