Light, heat and water act synergistically on coatings, textiles, and plastics used in exterior and interior automotive applications. The outdoor and laboratory weathering testing technologies and standards used in the automotive industry are among the most advanced and challenging methods.

Different types of materials, in-use conditions and degradation modes (e.g. color change, gloss loss, mechanical properties, scratch resistance, …) require specific testing approaches. Knowing the material specifics and selecting the correct test methods is key to make the right decisions in development, validation, and qualification of automotive products.

In this Online Seminar you learn about:

  • Types of materials and relevant degradation modes
  • Hotlight fastness testing for interior
  • Laboratory weathering testing of exterior paints and plastics
  • Outdoor testing for interior and exterior materials
