Environmental Testing – UV & Solar Radiation

Austest Laboratories operates 2 types of accelerated weathering chambers, providing full coverage of Solar and UV radiation exposure.

Xenon Arc Testing

Xenon Arc Solar Radiation Chamber

For a reproduction of the full spectrum of sunlight, including ultraviolet, visible light and infrared, combined with water spray and humidity to determine fading and colour change, we suggest using ourĀ Xenon Arc Solar Radiation Chamber.

Available Test Standards:

  • IEC60068-2-5:2018, Sa1, Sa2, Sa3, Sb1 & Sb2
  • ISO 4892-2:2013, Method A, Cycle 4
  • ASTM G155-21, Cycle 1

Short-wave UV Weathering Tester

For determining the degree of strength loss, yellowing, cracking, brittleness and blistering on polymers/plastics and paints, we suggest using ourĀ Short-wave UV Weathering Tester. This tester can be operated with or without 100% condensation/humidity.

Available Test Standards:

  • ASTM D4587-11, Cycle 4
  • ASTM G154-16, Cycle 1
  • ASTM D4329-21, Cycle A
