FOW II Seminar

Event Information

The Fundamentals of Weathering II will examine in more detail how various factors of weather and climate, may affect materials and how to test the resistance of a formulation or product to them. We will discuss in more detail the way advanced laboratory equipment controls irradiance, humidity, and temperature and how meaningful, accelerated testing is performed.

Participants attending this course will learn:

  • How the effects of weather influence material degradation
  • Photochemical degradation pathways and stabilization techniques
  • How to balance correlation and acceleration
  • Many other topics related to reliable weathering testing, such as reference materials, spectral sensitivity, reciprocity etc.
