The manufacturer is responsible for determining conformance to Table 2. Any backing used may affect test results and shall be agreed upon in advance between the interested parties.
ASTM G154 and G155 Explained
In order for xenon arcs to simulate terrestrial daylight,? Such outcomes cannot be quickly obtained in outdoor settings; therefore, these weatherization tests are invaluable in timely product development. The spray system shall be made from corrosion resistant materials that do not contaminate the water employed.
Because xenon arc light is most similar to natural sunlight, we generally use the ASTM G test for outdoor weatherization testing.
Without testing in g55 specific location over a number of years, it is impossible to perfectly predict product response.
B The data in Table 3 are based on the rectangular integration of 81 spectral power distributions for water cooled and air cooled xenon-arcs with extended UV? Corrosion resistant alloys of aluminum or stainless steel have been found acceptable. Positioning and calibration of chamber air temperature sensors shall be in accordance with the descriptions found in Practice G Thermometers shall conform to the descriptions found in Practice G It is recommended that at least three replicates of each material evaluated be exposed in each test to allow for statistical evaluation of results.
Different asrm of xenon arc light sources and different? Include a control, to act as a weatherization standard. Element can provide you with critically important data on your product or part’s performance in response to typical or extreme environmental stresses and conditions. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.
Overall, this test involves 21 days of exposure. The immersion system shall be made from corrosion resistant materials that do not contaminate the water employed. Alternatively, the exposure may simulate the effects of sunlight through window glass. If required for example, destructive testinguse unexposed? The glass transmission is the average for a series of single strength window glasses tested as part of a research study for ASTM Subcommittee G3.
More specific information about methods for determining the change in properties after exposure and reporting these results is described in Practice D NOTE 1—Practice G describes performance criteria for all exposure devices that use laboratory light sources.
Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. The percentages of UV and visible irradiances on samples exposed in xenon arc devices with window glass? See Appendix X4 for more information comparing the solar radiation data used in this standard with that for CIE 85 Table 4. Alternatively, the exposure may simulate the effects of sunlight through window glass.
Cycle 7 has been used for automotive exterior materials. Our team understands that florescent light has lower correlation to sunlight than xenon arc light; therefore, we generally recommend using the ASTM G fluorescent test to test for interior exposure i.
As a general guide, hours under UV-B bulbs is equivalent to 1 year of exposure in South Florida, while hours under UV-A bulbs can create the same exposure effects.
Asgm 2 — Caution: The aging properties of? For determining conformance to the relative spectral irradiance requirements for a xenon-arc with extended UV?
