One-Day Automotive Weathering & Corrosion Seminar at the British Motor Museum

Join Q-Lab and our Technical Experts as they deliver presentations on Weathering and Corrosion at the British Motor Museum in Warwickshire.

While some of this seminar’s content is tailored to those in the automotive industry, the majority of its weathering and corrosion testing information applies across many industries. We are happy to discuss whether this seminar is right for your specific application either by email or phone +44-1204-861616.

Date: Thursday, 24 October 2019
Location: British Motor Museum
Banbury Road, Gaydon, Warwickshire, CV35 0BJ
Cost: £120 per delegate

Part 1: Weathering & Lightstability

A wide variety of common interior and exterior weathering and lightfastness failures are experienced by automotive components in the field. These product failures provide the motivation for conducting testing on exterior and interior components.

We'll cover the following topics:

  • Weathering of automotive components
  • Weathering science basics and testing programs
  • Outdoor automotive weathering testing
  • Accelerated laboratory weathering test protocols for interior materials
  • Accelerated automotive weathering testing
  • ASTM D7869: Advanced Weathering Test Protocol for Transportation Coatings
  • Key Evaluation techniques for automotive components

Part 2: Corrosion

As with weathering and light degradation, there are numerous ways for automotive materials to experience cosmetic and structural corrosion in service environments. Outdoor and laboratory accelerated testing can help evaluate the effectiveness of corrosion prevention strategies as well as the corrosive behavior of metals after they become exposed to use environments. For automotive applications, the location of a particular component on the vehicle plays an important role in determining its risk for developing corrosion.

The presentation will cover the following topics:

  • Corrosion of automotive components
  • Corrosion science basics and testing programs
  • Corrosion mitigation strategies
  • Outdoor corrosion testing
  • Corrosion test history
  • Modern automotive laboratory cyclic corrosion standards
  • Modern corrosion testing standard case study: development of the new Jaguar Land Rover protocol
  • Verification of automotive corrosion test performance
  • Key evaluation techniques for automotive components


If you need accommodations for the seminar, The British Motor Museum has provided a list of local accommodations for our delegates attending this event. 

Spots for this unique seminar are extremely limited!
