Accelerated aging is the artificially expedited aging process of a product by subjecting it to aggravated operational and environmental conditions like temperature, pressure, humidity, and light. It is used to assess the long-term consequences of anticipated stress levels during a shorter period of time, typically in a lab setting using controlled standard test procedures. Accelerated aging tests are performed in the lab by Infinita Lab's experts to guarantee the functioning of your product. ... Read More

Accelerated aging is the expedited aging process of a product by subjecting it to aggravated operational and environmental conditions like temperature, pressure, humidity, light, and vibration. The goal of the study is to achieve long service life exposure in a shorter time frame to understand possible failure modes. It is routinely used in the medical device industry to estimate the lifespan or shelf life of products. It is also used in determining the aging response in structural materials and metal alloys, shelf life in the food industry, degradation chemistry in polymers, assessment of sealing, and faults in packaging. Furthermore, mechanical testing, physical and chemical analysis, potency, and other metrology testing are also done on the sample or device to quantify the aging process to generate data for prediction models.
The product undergoes physical or chemical testing by exposing it to long-term average stress levels, very high stress levels used to hasten the effects of aging naturally, or stress levels used to deliberately induce failure (for further analysis). Mechanical components are subjected to far higher speeds of operation than they would experience during regular use. It is common practice to maintain polymers at high temperatures in order to hasten chemical deterioration. The field of library and archival preservation also employs accelerated ageing. In this situation, a substance—typically paper—is put through harsh measures in an effort to hasten the ageing process.
There is no solitary approved set of circumstances in which these tests ought to be carried out. The environmental chambers and methodologies used for accelerated aging vary widely depending on the product being tested. There are industry standards in place, including AANSI ASTM, ISO, etc. Custom conditions and protocols are also developed for unique test article requirements. Some researchers have started comparing materials that have experienced accelerated aging to materials that have undergone natural ageing in an effort to improve the quality of accelerated aging studies.

Accelerated aging test, performed in the laboratory by controlled standard test methods, is used to determine the long-term effects of expected levels of stress in a short. The accelerated or expedited aging of a product is achieved by subjecting it to aggravated operational and environmental conditions like temperature, pressure, humidity, light, and vibration.
Accelerated aging testing is routinely used in several manufacturing industries to estimate the lifespan or shelf life of a product. It is also used in determining the aging response in structural materials and metal alloys, shelf life in the food industry, degradation chemistry in polymers, assessment of sealing faults in packaging, among others.
ASTM E572 test method covers the analysis of stainless and alloy steels by Wavelength Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence Spectrometry (WDXRF). It provides rapid, multi-element determinations with sufficient accuracy to assure product quality.
The ASTM D2674 test is a standard test method for the analysis of sulfochromate etch solutions used in the surface preparation of aluminum. The ASTM D2674 standard specifies a method for determining the efficacy of an etchant used to prepare the surface of aluminum alloys for subsequent adhesive bonding.
An immunological method for quantization of Hevea Natural Rubber (HNRL) proteins using rabbit anti-HNRL serum. Rabbits immunized with HNRL proteins react to the majority of the proteins present, and their sera have the capability to detect most if not all the proteins in HNRL.
ASTM G65 measures the resistance of metallic materials to abrasion using the dry sand/rubber wheel apparatus. The quality, durability, and toughness of the sample are determined using this test. Metallic materials are ranked in their resistance to scratching abrasion under a controlled environment.
ASTM E2141 test methods provide accelerated aging and monitoring of the performance of time-dependent electrochromic devices (ECD) integrated in insulating glass units (IGU). This test helps to understand the relative serviceability of electrochromic glazings applied on ECD.
ASTM C724 test method is used in analyzing the quality and ease of maintenance of a ceramic decoration on architectural-type glass. This test method is useful in the acknowledgment of technical standards.
