Education

Know Your Enemy

Sunlight, heat and moisture can cause serious product deterioration – such as color change, fading, cracking, peeling, oxidation, or loss of strength. Damage occurs both outdoors and indoors, and its severity can vary greatly in different climates. Even materials that are resistant to sunlight alone, or to moisture alone, often fail when exposed to sunlight and moisture in combination.

Do you know how well your products will last in every location where they are used?

Introduction to Weathering & Light Stability

Q-Lab offers standard and custom seminars around the world to help explain the fundamentals of weathering and light stability testing, including:

  • How light, heat & moisture damage materials
  • Why you should test
  • Outdoor and laboratory testing
  • Correlating test results
  • The right test for your needs

These seminars provide you with a practical, non-technical overview of weathering science and testing and help you learn when to use outdoor or laboratory exposures to answer your light stability and weathering questions. The seminars compare the strengths and limitations of xenon arc testers and fluorescent UV (QUV) testers, the two most commonly used lab weathering technologies. Your Q-Lab presenter will describe various weathering options and help you understand what types of testing are right for your specific applications.

Understanding weathering can help increase your profitability and help you:

  • Avoid costly product failures
  • Meet new specifications
  • Improve existing products
  • Bring new products to market

Who Should Attend?

You should consider a seminar if you are new to weathering and light stability testing, or if you would like a refresher course and update about current exposure options. Seminars are designed for those involved in:

  • materials research and development
  • quality control
  • operating lab weathering equipment
  • exposure analysis.

On-Site Training Available

For one inclusive price, seminars can be presented at your facility or at a location of your choice. The on-site training benefits your entire staff, allowing individuals to share ideas and ask questions specific to your company's requirements.
