Plastics - Methods of exposure to laboratory light sources - Part 3: Fluorescent UV lamps
|Publication Date:||15 February 2006|
|ICS Code (Plastics in general):||83.080.01|
This part of ISO 4892 specifies methods for exposing specimens to fluorescent UV radiation, heat and water in apparatus designed to reproduce the weathering effects that occur when materials are exposed in actual end-use environments to daylight, or to daylight through window glass.
The specimens are exposed to fluorescent UV lamps under controlled environmental conditions (temperature, humidity and/or water). Different types of fluorescent UV lamp may be used to meet all the requirements for testing different materials.
Specimen preparation and evaluation of the results are covered in other ISO documents for specific materials.
General guidance is given in ISO 4892-1.
NOTE Fluorescent UV lamp exposures for paints, varnishes and other coatings are described in ISO 11507.
