With potential history making Winter Storm Juno set to be a blizzard in 7 USA states almost upon us, manufacturers of outdoor products maybe wondering how their products will hold up under the predicted extreme cold temperatures blustery wind and 1-3 foot of snow.
Today, we received a request from a Waterproofing Materials Manufacturer that needs a laboratory for testing the insulation properties for coating on concrete at a temperature of minus 30 degree. This request is number 15-00148 in our incoming Laboratory Testing Requests.
When developing a product, manufacturers need to consider designing it for the temperatures that it will encounter and be subjected to over it’s lifetime. Weathering testing can either be done by Real-Time Studies or Accelerated Studies . Both simulate the damage caused by sunlight, rain and dew. Some testing done is weatherability, lightfastness, colorfastness, corrosion and photostability . ASTM, ISO, BSI, DIN, JIS, SAE, AATCC all have standards related to weathering testing.

If your company is manufacturing or distributing a product that needs weathering testing, SUBMIT LAB TEST REQUEST
