Weathering tests

At our accredited testing facilities we are able to perform advanced weathering tests by simulating a variety of realistic weather conditions.

This allows us to challenge the endurance of materials in order to find the right material for even the roughest environments – as one of many examples.

We offer different weathering testing possibilities, which makes it possible to test within conditions such as:

RAIN EROSION

  • DNVGL-RP-0171
    Recommended practice to test liquid impingement erosion using rotating apparatus
  • ASTM G73-10
    Standard test method for liquid impingement erosion using rotating apparatus

 

XENON TEST CHAMBER

  • ISO 16474
    Paint and varnishes - Methods of exposure to laboratory light sources
  • ISO 4892-2
    Plastics - Methods of exposure to laboratory light sources - part 2 Xenon-arc lamps
  • ASTM G155-13
    Standard practice for operating Xenon Arc light apparatus for exposure of non-metallic materials

 

GLOSS

  • ISO 2813
    Paint and varnishes - Determination of gloss value at 20°, 60° and 85°

 

OFFSHORE

  • ISO 20340
    Paint and varnishes – Performance requirements for protective paint systems for offshore and related structures. Please note that the standard refers to the outdated ISO 11507 standard for the UV exposure. This standard has been replaced by ISO 16474 - therefore, ISO 16474 is used instead of ISO 11507

 

SALT SPRAY

  • ISO 9227
    Corrosion tests in artificial atmospheres – Salt spray tests
