Simulates the effect of sunlight and condensation on paint, coated metals, plastic, fabrics, and other substrates.These tests are typically comprised of alternating cycles of QUV and Xenon exposure and moisture (condensation).These tests are typically combined with gloss (ASTM D523) and/or color (ASTM D2244) readings before and after exposure.
Provides a controlled accelerated corrosive environment to evaluate the relative corrosion resistance of the coating, substrate, or part itself.
Standardized and popular corrosion test method, used to check corrosion resistance of materials and surface coatings. Usually, the materials to be tested aremetallic(although stone, ceramics, and polymers may also be tested) and finished with a surface coating which is intended to provide a degree ofcorrosion protection to the underlying metal.
This method provides a means to assess the ability of a protective coating to resist degradation by chemicals and to protect the liquid cargo from contamination by either the substrate or coating, based on visual observations
Designed to estimate the resistance to disbondmentdue to cathodic reaction at the defect site.
