UV Testing When it comes to UV exposure testing , many tests, standards and methods exist, and Micom is happy to offer numerous different UV tests that, alone and combined, help our customers better understand their products. And while these two tests are similar, there are a few key differences in their application and purpose that can help make either a more appropriate choice for your needs. Both of these light sources are able to accurately predict, on an accelerated basis, the effect sunlight will have on a product.
And while both of these practices can be used to simulate indoor and outdoor sun exposure, xenon arc light is more similar to natural sunlight and, for this reason, is often a good choice for testing outdoor products. With this in mind, ASTM G, making use of a fluorescent light apparatus, often becomes the preferred choice for indoor UV testing, such as exposure to sunlight through a window. If this is your intended purpose, you may consider our ASTM G testing with its xenon arc exposure.
Both of these UV exposure test methods offer great results and will, via accelerated weathering, give you a good indication of how well your product will perform under natural sunlight exposure. This decision tree will help you quickly remember which UV Test you will need: Disclaimer All of the information and opinions contained in this blog are made with the information, and the understanding that we have reviewed at the time of publishing.
