The Atlas Ci3000 Xenon lamp aging test chamber is used as an example to introduce the application characteristics of the light fastness tester and to summarize the standards for its use. For other Xenon lamp aging test chamber related introduction, please consult Standard Group.
The damage to materials caused by natural sunlight and moisture causes incalculable economic losses every year. And the damage caused mainly includes fading, yellowing, discoloration, strength loss, embrittlement, oxidation, brightness loss, cracking, blurring and chalking. For products and materials exposed to direct sunlight or through glass windows, the risk of light damage is greatest. Materials exposed to fluorescent, halogen or other light emitting lamps for long periods of time are also subject to photodegradation.
The Xenon lamp aging test chamber can be used to select new materials, improve existing materials or evaluate changes in durability after changes in material composition. The Xenon lamp aging test chamber determines the light resistance of materials by exposing them to ultraviolet (UV), visible and infrared light. It uses a filtered xenon arc lamp to produce a full sunlight spectrum with maximum compatibility with sunlight. A properly filtered Xenon arc lamp is the best way to test a product's sensitivity to the longer wavelengths of ultraviolet and visible light in direct light or in sunlight through glass.
Xenon lamp aging test chamber using xenon arc lamp simulation control of the most ideal natural climate and daylight and other experimental conditions to test the color and performance changes of textile dyes, can also test the aging resistance of materials, can ensure good repeatability and reproducibility based on the test product life. The Atlas Ci3000+ has been certified by several international standards organizations. The light fastness tester can provide corresponding environmental simulation and acceleration tests for research, product development and quality control.
