Through our network of over 43, people in 1, laboratories and offices axtm countries, Intertek provides quality and safety solutions to d4459 wide range of industries around the world. Accelerated weathering provides exposed samples for comparison to unexposed control samples. Assurance Enabling you to identify and mitigate the intrinsic risk in your operations, supply chains and business processes.
Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. Often several exposure times such as, and hours also will be compared to each other.
Certification Formally confirming that your products and services meet all trusted external and internal standards. Accelerated weathering simulates the damaging effects of long term outdoor exposure of materials and coatings by exposing test samples to varying conditions of the most aggressive components of weathering – light, moisture, and heat.
awtm Formally confirming that your products and services meet all trusted external and internal standards. It is recommended that at least three replicates of each material be exposed to allow for statistical evaluation of results.
Assurance Testing Inspection Certification.
No direct correlation can be made between accelerated weathering duration and actual outdoor exposure duration. Therefore, all references to the use of this practice must be accompanied by a report prepared in accordance with Section 9 that describes the specific operating conditions used.
Xenon-Arc Accelerated Exposure
Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. Whether your business is local or global, we can ensure your products meet quality, health, environmental, safety, and social accountability standards for virtually any market around the world. These cycles would be continued for extended periods of time – up to thousands of hours – simulating even longer periods of time in the real world.
Inspection Validating the specifications, value and safety of your raw materials, products and assets. Enabling you to identify and mitigate the intrinsic risk in your operations, supply chains and business processes. A Weather-Ometer uses a xenon arc light source to provide a radiation spectrum that simulates natural sunlight. However, performance comparisons under the controlled conditions of accelerated weathering can be compared to documented performance of materials and coatings that have experienced extended periods of end use exposure.
Smaller sizes, or slightly larger sizes, can be accommodated, but this equipment does not readily accept actual parts. Testing Evaluating how your products and services meet and exceed quality, safety, sustainability and performance standards.
Auditing Consulting Sourcing Training. Moisture is provided by a humidifier and direct spray, and temperature is controlled by heaters.
Polystyrene Lightfastness Standards are included among the test samples to monitor and verify the performance of the equipment.
Microprocessors monitor and precisely control the radiation applied to the test samples. Global Reach Intertek is the industry leader with over 42, people in 1, locations in over countries.
This practice uses exposure in a xenon-arc device equipped with window glass filters and operated in accordance with Practices G and G Note 3 — Additional information on sources of variability and on strategies for addressing variability in the design, execution and data analysis of laboratory accelerated d4459 tests is found in Guide G Send us a request Wilton UK: Send us a request Awtm help or have a question? Various cycles are defined by the appropriate specifications depending upon the intended end use application.
Need help or have a question? Significant factors include regulation of line voltage, temperature and humidity control, and condition and age of the lamps and filters.
Xenon-Arc Accelerated Exposure
Standard specimens are 69mm x mm. Standards can be obtained from appropriate standard authorities.
Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. Up to 60 test samples are mounted in the Xenon Arc and subjected to a cycle of exposure to specified combinations of light, humidity, temperature and water spray.
Validating the specifications, value and safety of your raw materials, products and assets. Refer to Practice G for detailed information on the caveats applicable to use of results obtained in accordance with this practice. Glass filters asm the xenon arc modify the light spectrum to simulate the appropriate end use conditions.
It is the responsibility of the user of this d44599 to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
Evaluating how your products and services meet and exceed quality, safety, sustainability and performance standards. Note 1 — There is no known ISO equivalent to this practice.
