Plastics - Methods of exposure to laboratory light sources - Part 4: Open-flame carbon-arc lamps
|Publication Date:||15 July 2013|
|ICS Code (Plastics in general):||83.080.01|
This part of ISO 4892 specifies methods for exposing specimens to open-flame carbon-arc lamps in the presence of moisture to reproduce the weathering effects that occur when materials are exposed in actual end-use environments in daylight or daylight filtered through window glass.
The specimens are exposed to filtered open-flame carbon-arc light under controlled environmental conditions (temperature, moisture). Various filters are described.
Specimen preparation and evaluation of the results are covered in other International Standards for specific materials.
General guidance is given in ISO 4892-1.
