How Long Do I Have to Carry Out Accelerated Weathering Testing to Simulate X Years of Outdoor Exposure?
Your outdoor furniture, the exterior of your house and the fencing or other outdoor elements of the house may get damage and effect due to the external weather conditions. Effects of weather on these external elements of your house are determined by accelerated weathering testing. The testing is done using a weatherometer and is used in the process of UV aging in several industries. Test equipment such as Xenon arc chamber, UV chamber and Carbon arc chamber are classified as weatherometer.
Organic materials such as plastics, inks and coatings are usually damaged by exposure to light and weathering. This is the primary reason why accelerated weathering and light stability testers are widely used for material certification, quality control and also for research and development. The results produced by these testers are usually reproducible and fast. The xenon arc test chamber and the fluorescent UV (QUV) accelerated weathering tester are some of the most commonly used accelerated weathering testers. But despite being the most frequently used testers they are based on approaches which are different.
