    Accelerated Weathering Testing Services

    Accelerated weathering testing simulates the long-term effects of common outdoor elements like UV radiation, moisture, humidity, wind, sand, and dust. Materials and products like paints, coatings, automobile components degrade due to continuous exposure to the natural elements. Degradation can be in the form of corrosion, discoloration, chipping, cracking, hazing or other appearance, material deterioration, or performance issues. Environmental test chambers are utilized to accelerate the environmental effects and provide results within weeks or months by simulating a rapid weathering process. Other accelerated weathering testing methods include humidity, sand and dust, fog (salt spray) testing, moisture testing, corrosion testing.

    Any material or product exposed to the environment regularly is tested for weathering effects. Accelerated weathering tests provide essential information for production and product specification in most industries, including aerospace, automotive, consumer goods, defense, etc. Industry-specific testing standards are available where weathering tests play a vital role in the product life cycle, like paints and coating, automotive interiors, construction materials.

    Our testing labs are well equipped to carry out accelerated weathering tests and provide the best results to our clients based in the USA and other parts of the world. We at Infinita Lab perform not only routine tests, but also custom tests designed in our testing labs as per the client’s specific requirements.

    Accelerated Exposure Testing

    UV exposure testing is the most commonly used methodology to test for light damage or degradation. Carbon arc systems are used to simulate high-level UV exposures, and xenon arc weathering systems are used to simulate the effects of prolonged exposure to UV, visible and infrared radiations and measure the mechanical, optical and electrical properties when exposed to light and heat.

      FAQs on Accelerated Weathering Testing

      What is accelerated weathering testing?

       Accelerated weathering testing is a type of weathering test that evaluates the impacts of extreme weathering conditions on the materials. This test simulates the long-term effects of common outdoor elements like UV radiation, moisture, humidity, wind, sand, and dust, among others. 

      What Is accelerated weathering testing used for?

      Accelerated weathering tests are used to provide essential information regarding the durability of a material or product under certain environmental conditions. This test is regularly for production and product specification in most industries, including aerospace, automotive, consumer goods, defense, among others. 

      Where can I get accelerated weathering testing done for my products?

      Our product testing labs regularly provide accelerated weathering testing for a wide range of products and materials.

      What is the cost of an accelerated weathering test?

      Accelerated weathering testing costs depend on the product and the environmental conditions for which they are tested. For example, highly accelerated temperature tests start at $1930.
