Sunlight, heat, and moisture can cause serious product deterioration over time – such as color change, cracking, peeling, oxidation, or loss of strength. Damage from weathering or corrosion 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?

Reliable weathering and corrosion data can help you avoid unexpected product failures.

Testing with Q-Lab’s industry-leading weathering test equipment and test services can increase your profitability when used for selecting new or less expensive materials, improving existing materials, and evaluating how changes in formulation affect product durability.

Natural outdoor weathering and corrosion testing gives the most realistic prediction of product performance in such environments over time, but with a longer test duration. Accelerated outdoor testing and accelerated laboratory testing can yield faster results but have other compromises. Many companies use both natural and accelerated testing in order to compare the data and ensure the desired results are achieved from any test program.
