another artificial weathering Q-SUN Xenon Arc Chamber on its way

Due to popular demand, impact solutions are waiting for another artificial weathering Q-Sun Xe-3 chamber to be delivered over the next couple of weeks.  This will be our fourth addition to our  Q-Sun Xe-3 Xenon Arc Test Chamber collection in six weeks.

Artificial weathering is a very important test procedure to asses the performance of a product against environmental conditions and UV exposure.  It allows for the product to be treated under an artificial weathering environment and helps to show any physical changes that can be expected over it’s lifetime. The test samples are placed on a tray, inside the artificial weathering machine where they are subjected to a programme designed to mimic the conditions in which it is predicted to face during its lifetime.
