Light aging test, UV aging, light fastness, strength and durability of products:

All the products that are used in everyday life are exposed to various attacks which degrade them over time and alter their properties. This concerns absolutely all types of products and manufactured goods:

Paintings :

For buildings (facade, interior decoration painting, aluminum lacquering for doors and windows, carpentry paints, stains, varnishes), for bodywork (cars, trucks, construction machinery, planes, boats, trains), for industry (protective coatings against corrosion, machine paints).

Plastics, composites and rubber:

General public (household appliances, toys, garden equipment, outdoor furniture, packaging, luggage, automobile (bumpers, dashboards, door interiors, interior parts, joints), building (cladding, wood-composite slats, joints) , industry (masterbatch, compounds, dyes, pigments, resin).

• Protective coatings for metals:

Painting, surface treatment, anodizing, galvanizing,

• Textiles:

Clothing, shoes, home interior, automotive upholstery textiles, outdoor sports, camping equipment, hunting, fishing, mountaineering, technical textiles for the building (veiling, shading), screen printing.

• Adhesives and glues:

Sealants, signage, stickers, industry and building adhesives, additives.

• Inks:

Printing, packaging, coins, screen printing, graphic arts.

• Cosmetics and pharmacy:

Sunscreens, make-up, perfumes, hair dyes, nail polish, shower gel, soaps, active ingredients, medicines, blisters.

• Food and drinks :

Mineral water, sodas, beers, vacuum-packed foods, food coloring.

• Detergents:

Household cleaning products, household, automotive, industrial cleaning products.

We are talking about the durability of a product, a material, a material: it is its ability to maintain its properties.

The properties that will degrade and the criteria that are important may vary from one product to another:

It may be loss of color (color difference, Delta E), yellowing (Delta B), bleaching (Delta L), loss of gloss (retention of gloss), loss of mechanical properties, tearing , cracking, delamination, chalking, embrittlement, disappearance of an active principle, loss of odor, container-content interaction, appearance of VOCs, toxicity.

All manufactured products are light tested either to meet regulatory requirements or as part of quality control and continuous improvement: manufacturing and raw material control, choice of new materials, process validation.

There are two main families of light aging enclosures:

  • UV aging enclosures (Q-Lab machine models: QUV).
  • Solar light aging enclosures (Arc-Xenon enclosure, Q-Lab machine model: Q-Sun equivalent SUNTEST, Wheather-O-Meter.

Q-SUN xenon arc aging chambers

The sun, heat and humidity cause very expensive damage every year. The phenomena of discoloration, yellowing, loss of appearance properties but also cracking, cracks, occur both indoors and outdoors. Q-Sun Xenon aging chambers, manufactured by QLab corporation, simulate degradation caused by the entire solar spectrum, temperature and humidity.
