Climate Exposure

We are one of the few laboratories in Canada to offer Military standard (MIL STD 810F) solar radiation soak testing featuring the Atlas Solar climatic chamber
manufactured by WEISS Technik. This chamber offers simultaneous solar exposure and cyclic heating and cooling with humidity control.

To expedite service we have designed LIMS firmware to optimize testing throughput using a customized wireless system. Our service model is designed to meet a wide range of customer requirements from short term troubleshooting testing to long term product qualification testing. If required we can customize
test programs designed for your products end use environment.

Our expanding testing equipment inventory also includes multiple xenon-arc weather-ometers, fade-ometers and an Atlas UV 2000 fluorescent UV weatherometer which is specifically suited to sunload durability testing of paints and coating systems.

Solar Climatic Chamber (SC 340 MHG)The solar climatic unit is a state of the art test system for simulating indoor and outdoor conditions. Parameters such as global irradiation, temperature and
humidity can be individually programmed for whatever your needs may be. The chamber can be used to test automotive components, electronic equipment,
photovoltaics, plastic components, materials used in construction such as window units and roofing material.

The SC chamber is equipped with a 1.5 kW metal halide global (MHG) lamp whose output combine with glazing options that meet the spectral requirements
of MIL STD 810F and several automotive interior parts testing standards including DIN 75220. The SC 340 chamber has an available exposure
target area of 28 in x 22 in.

UV 2000 Weather-ometer
The Atlas UV 2000 is the perfect screening device for testing the effects of
the sun’s energy on your material easily and affordably. It can be used to test
textiles and geotextiles, paints, coatings and pigments, plastics, photovoltaics,
wood coatings, adhesives and automotive exteriors. The chamber is designed
for rapid weathering. Specimens will be exposed to UV radiation and uniform
wetting at 100 % relative humidity. Spray nozzles provide uniform wetting for
user selectable time periods. The UV 2000 meets and exceeds test requirements
for ASTM, DIN, ISO, JIS and may other industry standards and requirements.

Ci 35/65 Weather-ometers/fadeometer
In the natural environment, light, moisture and heat combine synergistically to cause photochemical and mechanical changes to your product. Predicting these
changes in the laboratory depends on close simulation of the actual end use conditions. The Atlas Ci65A reproduces and accelerates the degradation
process in a controlled exposure test with precision and repeatability.

The Ci65A provides radiant energy using a single water cooled xenon arc lamp whose filtered output closely simulates natural sunlight.

Temperature can be continuously monitored and controlled throughout the test. The Ci65A can produce three different types of moisure – humidity, condensation and direct water spray. The Ci65A can be programmed to cycle your exposure test between light and dark cycles plus sample wetting.

The Ci35F fade-ometer is specifically designed for fade/lightfastness testing , including textile/geotextile materials subjected direct sunload exposure or by
filtered window glass exposure.

Climate Exposure
For customers who require simulated sunload testing of larger footprint
materials, ACS offers testing in a walk-in environmental chamber that can
be pro-grammed to deliver multiple pre-programmed or custom temperature/
humdity exposure profiles. Using available walk-in chambers, ACS
can perform custom sunload, temperature and/or humidity single setpoint
or cycling testing of mid-size (up to 1.2 m x 1.2 m x 1.5 m) footprint items.

To complete our scope of testing we offer full test evaluation services including instrumental color change and gloss analysis. We maintain a clean professional
testing lab operating 24/7. Professionalism and Customer service are critical to our service model. WE GUARANTEE YOUR TEST COMPLETION DATES.
Your test is FREE if we miss your test completion date by more than 2 days.

Our scope of ISO 17025 accreditation will cover a range of product applications including Military, Aerospace, Automotive, Paints, Plastics, Building and
Consumer products, and textiles. We are now equipped to perform testing for customers undertaking R&D /troubleshooting or preliminary new product solar
load testing.
