Weathering is an adverse effect on a material or product. It often causes unwanted or premature failure of a product. Consumers spend millions of dollars every year buying products that inevitably degrade or are replacing items that fail. We at ACS can help to prevent deterioration and premature product failure through weathering tests to assess a materials durability. The aging behavior of materials and products can be accelerated through environmental simulation in a
considerably shorter time frame than would naturally occur. We at ACS can help to test the effects of weather on your products.

ACS offers discounted pricing for volume testing of automotive interior/exterior parts eg. temperature cycling, weathering/fade resistance, heat and simulated sunload testing applicable to DVP&R test program materials ... frame moldings, body side moldings, body side panel components, grills, console bezels, guages, switches etc.

Our custom test program services include continuous monitoring and data recording of critical exposure parameters such as temperature, humidity, and solar irradiation.
