Environmental exposure, including weathering and accelerated ageing testing for polymers and composites.
Intertek provides accelerated ageing testing of polymer and plastic materials and products. During their life time, plastics are exposed to all kinds of environmental impacts such as light, humidity and temperature. Our experts test the resistance of polymeric products against environmental impact, weathering, temperature, humidity, repeated sterilization or UV/ Xenon exposure. The polymer materials or products will be exposed under defined conditions to heat, UV, and other stress to determine its critical properties before and after exposure.
