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

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.
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.
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 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.
For over 50 years, Q-PANEL steel and aluminum test substrates have been recognized as the world standard for a consistent and uniform test surface for paints, plating, adhesives, sealants, rust inhibitors and other coatings.
Q-Lab’s state-of-the-art natural outdoor and accelerated lab test services are available at a surprisingly affordable price. In many cases, it is less costly to test with Q-Lab than to set up and run tests yourself.
Q‑TRAC delivers the benefits of testing in a natural outdoor environment while amplifying the sunlight and heat delivered to specimens. This test is useful for highly-durable materials with long expected lifetimes.
