Simulation of the effect of atmospheric agents for a long time to study the behavior of materials.
The instruments that simulate the exposition to hot, to sunlight, to humid environment and salt spray, have huge importance in several sectors, especially when the technical performances and the guarantee to the consumer are not regulated. Submit materials to accelerated ageing is the only way that allow to manufacturer to obtain an immediate reply of materials durability.
By Xenon Weather-Ometer® WOM Test and Solar Box instruments, CSI can support all Customers that need to check the performances of materials (outer or inner covering, automotive components, plastic or gummy materials, textiles) after ageing in different conditions.
