fadeometer

fadeometer

An apparatus for determining the resistance of resins and other materials to fading. It accelerates the fading by subjecting the article to high-intensity ultraviolet rays of approximately the same wavelength as those found in sunlight.

Tenders are invited for Amc and calicration for xenotest alpha plus (fadeometer) as per terms and conditions enclosed (wj00012635)
The container's resistance to UV rays can be monitored on a sunny shelf or in the Fadeometer. Torque tests are run to check cap tightness.
Tests could include salt water soak tests, Sutherland Rub tests, chemical resistance tests, Fadeometer tests, Weatherometer tests, and burst strength tests."
A Fadeometer allows the ink formulator to test a sample of the ink by comparing the exposed portion of the sample to the unexposed part.
Testing and Evaluation Procedures for Compounds * Physical tests: tensile, modulus, elongation * Low temperature: brittle point, impact, torsional stiffness, cold bend * Chemical tests: extraction, compatibility * Viscosity: low shear, high shear * High temperature: aging, heat stability * Environmental: fadeometer, weatherometers, and types
The finished product reportedly meets generally accepted lighting industry performance of not more than 15 points yellowness factor at 1000 hr on an Atlas fadeometer. Resulting lighting panels are reportedly equivalent to those made with commercially available light-stable PS.
