New QUV/uvc Accelerated Weathering Tester!

Now accepting orders. Learn more about its features and UVC testing below.




Will your product last when exposed to UVC light?

UV light is used widely in ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI), a technique used to eliminate harmful viruses and bacteria.

UVC light can cause degradation of plastics, leather, fabrics and textiles, coatings, and more!

QUV/uvc Accelerated Weathering Tester

QUV is the the world's most widely used weathering tester.

The NEW QUV/uvc tester features:

  • The new Gen 4 Controller with dual touch-screen displays and 8 languages
  • UVC lamps to deliver light at 254 nm and the SOLAR EYE system to precisely monitor and control UVC dosage
  • Multiple safety features to prevent stray UVC light

Q-Lab UVC Lamps

UVC lamps deliver high-intensity short-wave UV light at 254 nm, which is well below the solar cut-on. This represents the most common UVC emission used for disinfection of surfaces. UVC lamps reproduce this damaging irradiance, in order to evaluate durability of materials exposed to UVC light. 

Please note, UVC lamps are only compatible with the QUV/uvc tester and cannot be used with other QUV models.

Q-Lab is the world leader in weathering and corrosion test equipment and test services.


Accelerated Weathering Tester

The QUV accelerated weathering tester is the weathering device relied on most because of its realistic simulation of the critical short-wave UV portion of sunlight and realistic, aggressive moisture functions.

Xenon Test Chambers

 For some applications, simulating the full sunlight spectrum is important, making the Q-SUN xenon test chamber a popular choice because of its accurate sunlight simulation and versatile, easy-to-use flat specimen tray.

Cyclic Corrosion Chambers

Cyclic corrosion testing provides the best possible laboratory simulation of natural atmospheric corrosion. The Q-FOG can perform traditional salt spray, Prohesion, and most cyclic automotive tests.
