Weathering Tester

A weathering test is a system for determining weathering characteristics of materials and coatings. Weathering testing is used to improve product durability and is also a tool for decision making. Such tests can be used to predict durability or to monitor changes in mechanical properties during weathering of materials.

Weathering is the adverse response of a material or product to climate, often causing unwanted and premature product failures. To prevent premature product failure and degradation, chemical or mechanical stabilization is used, and to assess the durability of a material, weathering tests are used.
