Weathering Basics Sunlight, heat and moisture cause millions of dollars in product damage every year. Cracking, crazing, hazing, fading and yellowing occur indoors or outdoors. With Q-SUN® xenon test chambers, you can simulate the damage caused by full-spectrum sunlight, temperature and moisture. In just a few days or weeks, a Q-SUN tester can reproduce the damage that occurs over months or years outdoors. Xenon Testers Q-SUN xenon test chambers are the Three basic models suit the xenon Q-SUN test chambers are used by ultimate research & development and testing needs of any lab: the tabletop companies...

Rotating Rack Q-SUN Xe-2 The Q-SUN Xe-2 xenon tester offers a large-capacity rotating rack. It is often selected to meet some of the few remaining hardware-specific testing standards. It supports 31 specimens of 46 mm x 122 mm (1.8” x 4.8”) each. Its single air-cooled lamp is more economical than water-cooled lamps, highly efficient and very low maintenance. The versatile Q-SUN Xe-2 tester is the simplest, most reliable, and easiest to use rotating rack xenon arc tester available. The Xe-2 tester’s rotating rack www.q-lab.com

For many materials, exposure to the full spectrum is necessary to provide an accurate simula- tion, especially when testing for color change Full-Spectrum Xenon Lamps Q-SUN xenon arc test chambers use air-cooled xenon arc lamps to significantly reduce operating and maintenance expenses. Lamp life is guaranteed at 1500 hours. Q-SUN models Xe-1 and Xe-2 use one lamp and model Xe-3 uses three. Changing lamps is quick...
