UV- and Solar Radiation

Lightfastness
These tests mainly aim at determining the aging properties of plastics, coatings, varnishes and other materials. Varying radiation intensity and radiation types simulate the radiation in different locations.

Specifications

  • Radiation intensity between 50 and 1120 W/m2
  • Radiation wave length between 230 and 2500nm
  • Chamber volume up to 1700 liters
  • Temperature range -40 °C to +180 °C
  • temperature gradient (depending on DUT properties) 2 to 3 K/min
  • superposition with climate
  • Indoor- / Outdoor- simulation
  • simulation of sunrise and sunset
