Accelerated Environmental Testing
Environmental exposure testing is designed to evaluate a material or coatings performance against environmental deterioration. This could be part of periodic testing or R&D. The aim is to establish whether a coating is suitable for its intended purpose, or which coating is best for its intended purpose.
The process is simple: expose samples to a pre determined exposure & evaluate against pre defined criteria to see if it meets the performance requirements. R&D may see various examples of materials, finishes & coatings exposed to the same environment with evaluations to see which has performed best.
