Fundamentals of Weathering - The Basics

  • Overview +

    The Fundamentals of Weathering - The Basics is a one day seminar 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 most relevant information in our Fundamentals of Weathering I and II seminars is concentrated into this one day event.

    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.
