Xenotest 220/220+

  • Overview +



    Xenotest 220 is a highly economic textile color lightfastness tester that can test up to 250 samples simultaneously. It complies to industry standards ISO 105- B02, AATCC TM16 (option 3), and Marks & Spencer C9, C9A.

    Xenotest 220+ is an economic entry solution for rotating rack weathering & lightfastness testing. Same as 220 approved for common textile standards, however further suitable for testing plastics, coatings, and other materials.
