Every day, accelerated weathering and light stability testers help R&D, quality control, and new product development engineers improve their products, minimize failures, and reduce raw material costs. During this webinar, we will:

• Compare fluorescent UV and xenon arc accelerated weathering testing

• Describe how these methods simulate sunlight, temperature and moisture

• Provide guidance on the best use of laboratory weathering technologies

• Discuss the importance of natural weathering tests

• Dispel the myth that natural weathering tests are too slow and costly

Participants will be eligible to receive credit from SSPC.
