In Germany Atlas Material Testing Technology (MTT) is expanding its weathering testing laboratory to provide even faster solar simulation testing. It is now possible to significantly expedite research, development and quality control of materials and products for automotive, electronics, aerospace and military applications, even on short notice.
Part of the Atlas Weathering Services Group, the Linsengericht/Germany facility is the largest weathering testing laboratory in the world with an ISO 17025 accreditation. It provides global clients in automotive, paints-and-coatings, plastics, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, textiles, and furniture access to Atlas technical expertise and is equipped with nearly 50 state-of-the-art weathering test instruments, including xenon test instruments, solar simulation test chambers, and fluorescent UV, and UVC devices.
With the addition of the SunEvent 600 from Atlas partner Weiss Technik GmbH, Reiskirchen/Germany, to its Atlas SC340 and SC1000 climatic testing chambers, there is greater access to solar testing instruments for accelerated simulation of the effects of sunlight, temperature and humidity – including those found in extreme climate zones. As Atlas Material Testing Technology, Mount Prospect, IL/USA, is a leader in outdoor and accelerated laboratory testing, customers have the assurance that all simulations are as realistic as possible.
