Event Information


The Fundamentals of Weathering is a basic, one day seminar offered at various locations worldwide that emphasizes lightfastness and weathering durability testing techniques. These techniques include natural and accelerated outdoor exposure testing as well as laboratory accelerated methods and instruments.

The seminar will introduce the basics of how various factors of weather and climate, such as solar radiation, heat and moisture, affect materials and how to test the resistance of a formulation or product to them. Special attention is given to the testing techniques of paints and protective coatings, automotive materials, architectural building products and molded plastic materials. Textile and fiber lightfastness and weatherability are also discussed.
