Rain and Shine: How Durable Your Products are under Accelerated Weather

About the Seminar

With global warming on the rise, extreme weather conditions are becoming more frequent. We all know this is going to be damaging to your outdoor applications, but what more can you do?

Through this seminar, we will share with you how you can test your plastic and polymer products through weather conditions such as sunlight, high temperature, and moisture. We will also discuss how these accelerated test results are correlated to the actual outdoor weathering for predicting durability of your products.

Applications of weathering tests with reference to food and packaging materials, paint and coating, polymer 3D printed product, personal care, and automotive products will also be introduced. Together with some case studies relevant to these industries, we will end off with Q-Lab’s latest news and test standards.
