QUV SE - QUV Accelerated Weathering
QUV testers are available in four different models: QUV/basic, QUV/se, QUV/spray, and QUV/cw. Each air-cooled tester features Q-Lab’s renowned reliability and ease of maintenance. All testers have standard datalogging via ethernet and/or USB, a variety of standard sample holders, automatic fault recognition and alarms, automatic shut-down timer, and a remarkably simple user interface available in five languages.
The QUV accelerated weathering tester reproduces the damage caused by sunlight, rain and dew. In a few days or weeks, the QUV UV tester can reproduce the damage that occurs over months or years outdoors. To simulate outdoor weathering, the QUV accelerated tester exposes materials to alternating cycles of UV light and moisture at controlled, elevated temperatures. It simulates the effects of sunlight using special fluorescent UV lamps. It simulates dew and rain with condensing humidity and/or water spray. The QUV accelerated weathering tester is the simplest, most reliable, and easiest to use weathering tester available. With thousands of testers in use worldwide, it is the world’s most widely used weathering tester.
