Weathering Tester

532 / I

BANDOL WHEEL® 532/I designed for "Dry"weathering cycles, has been developed for the simulation of purely dry climates, to reproduce the photo oxidation process without influence of water. To complete the weathering cycle, a mask can be added in the equipment which permits theintroduction of obscurity phases without switching off the light source (increase of thelamp lifetime).

Purpose and application: The BANDOL WHEEL® System, together with the regulation of the temperature by a micro-controller, allows to obtain results that classical instrument can not achieve. The samples get a nominal UV radiation level corresponding to about “2 suns”. This permits an important acceleration in weathering that, at the same time, still correlates with natural weathering.
