Weatherability tester. (Instruments).

The Suntest tabletop instrument is said to accurately screen new materials for lightfastness and weatherability. Other less capable instruments do not match end use environments as well as this family of low-end weathering instruments, according to the manufacturer. The Suntest is said to have a sophisticated reflector system that provides uniform irradiance on the sample plane to maximize the exposure area, and a reflective mirror system that is said to optimize radiation output, shortening test times. The customized xenon light filter system matches specific conditions in a sample's end use environment. (Atlas Material Testing)
