Presented by Q-Lab and BYK-Gardner USA.
Technical experts from Q-Lab, "The Most Trusted Name in Weathering" and BYK Gardner, the international leader in Quality Control instruments for appearance and color, will present to attendees on the fundamentals and new advances in accelerated and natural outdoor weathering testing and evaluation for interior and automotive applications.
This joint, 90-minute program will provide an overview and comparison of key accelerated laboratory weathering technologies, including, recent trends in accelerated test development and correlation to real-world exposures. Some common automotive interior and exterior failure modes like color change and gloss loss will be presented along with state-of-the-art techniques and equipment for measurement and evaluation of these properties.
Understanding of these topics provides a good basis for implementing a robust weathering testing and evaluation program that can help to avoid costly product failures, meet new specifications, improve existing products, and bring new products to market.
