TSL 3600G

change in surface by ageing

Xenon lamp aging test integrates optical radiation, temperature, relative humidity, moisture and other aging factors. It simulates the climate environment under the circumstance of using indoor and outdoor light sources, all within a xenon arc test chamber. At the same time, it combines temperature and humidity with water spraying period. TSL 0601G test standard is used by most automotive companies to carry out artificial accelerated weathering and light ageing testing.
