QUV Accelerated Weathering Tester
QUV Ultraviolet light
Ultraviolet light causes most of the photo degradation of the materials exposed to the outdoors environment.
QUV test chamber only reproduces the ultraviolet light portion of the spectrum. Our UVA-340 lamp is the best available simulation of short wave sunlight.
Particularly useful to compare the performance of the different type of polymers and stabilizers.
Best lamp for correlation studies.
Outdoors products can be exposed to humidity, in the form of dew, up to 15 hours per day. All QUV models provided a rigorous humidity and very realistic at the same time with hot humidity condensation cycles.
The QUV/spray model can simulate the rain’s effects, such as thermal shock and erosion.
