Natural weathering

Weather resistance and longevity are in the most cases basic requirements for products and materials, which are used outdoors. Also materials behind glass panels that are exposed to the sun, have to prove their resistance against radiation and increased temperature. Weathering is the most important method to check these quality characteristics. It does not only concern light fastness, but rather the complex influences by radiation, humidity, temperature and temperature change. You differ:

Natural weathering: recommendable amongst others as basic examination for varnishes, coating materials and polymer materials
