    Waterproofness Testing

    Waterproofness testing is a part of environmental testing performed to ensure a product is designed with ample water protection to withstand partial or complete exposure to conditions like humidity, rain, condensation, accidental submersion, etc. Consumer electronics, electronic and electrical components, packaging materials, building materials, cosmetics, and specialty fabrics are required to meet industry standard water resistance before they are marketed. Testing is typically performed to check for ingress protection, water-resistance against jets, drip, driving rain, continuous stream, immersion, etc. Each industry has a definitive testing standard and waterproofing ratings that products are required to comply with. When products are not adequately waterproof, they can result in complete product failure, corrosion, mold, loss in performance, electrical hazards, etc.
