Plastics - Methods of exposure to laboratory light sources - Part 2: Xenon-arc lamps
|Publication Date:||1 March 2013|
|ICS Code (Plastics in general):||83.080.01|
This part of ISO 4892 specifies methods for exposing specimens to xenon-arc light in the presence of moisture to reproduce the weathering effects (temperature, humidity and/or wetting) that occur when materials are exposed in actual end-use environments to daylight or to daylight filtered through window glass.
Specimen preparation and evaluation of the results are covered in other International Standards for specific materials.
General guidance is given in ISO 4892-1.
NOTE Xenon-arc exposures of paints and varnishes are described in ISO 11341.
