Accelerated Outdoor UV Testing is accurately performed to international standards such as ASTM G155, D2565, and D4459 in order to determine color fastness. This is extremely valuable for manufacturers who want to determine optimal performance during warranty periods, expected lifecycle of products, and the proper levels of UV inhibitors to include in their manufacturing processes.
A full suite of data analyses is available, including photography services, colorimetry measurements, and gloss readings. We can also include a Certification Report optionally which details the specific measurements of your samples, as well as equipment used in the testing, and all relevant data points.
We have decades of experience in Accelerated Outdoor UV testing, and are the first choice for the most demanding clients in Aerospace, Automotive, Medical, Fashion, Furniture, and dozens of other industries worldwide.
