Weathering Test

  • Accelerated Natural Weathering Test
  • Weather Resistance Evaluation
  • Infra (IR) Sun Simulation

Purpose of Weathering Test:

To determine the characteristics of materials and coatings as well as functionality of automotive electronic systems. The results are used for improving and predicting product durability and also monitor changes in mechanical properties during weathering of materials.

Critical and Potential Failures from Weathering Test:

  • Colour change & fading
  • Cracking
  • Warping
  • Chalking
  • Yellowing symptoms
  • Crazing
  • Embrittlement
  • Blistering
  • Hazing
  • Peeling & delamination
  • Gloss loss
  • Loss of tensile strength

Automotive Applications:

Automotive OEMs and all tiers of the supply chain that include the flowing segments:

  • Coatings
  • Interior trims & plastics
  • Displays
  • Interior textiles and leather
  • Exterior trims & plastics
  • Automotive lighting
  • Graphic overlays
  • Curing of carbon fiber composites
  • Material ageing test
