Accelerated Aging Ovens are used to detect the effects of elevated temperatures on the properties of material. Testing through these ovens is performed in air for a specified period of timeat varied temperatures. The accelerated aging oven helps to measure the properties prior to and after the exposure of the material to high temperatures. The results displayed on the digital panel of the device represent a percentage of variation in properties with the exception of the variation in durometer hardness and variation in IRHD hardness.The change in hardness values of the material is reported as the change in hardness points of the material.

Majorly polymers are use in a variety of industries for different use and purpose. The polymers and elastomers are also used for many applications where they have to be exposed to open environment for a long time. This exposure to open environment has a great effect on the quality and durability of the polymers as the environmental factors can cause fundamental changes in the molecular structure, chemical and physical properties of polymers. The Xenon testing chamber offered by Presto helps in testing the effect of environmental factors such as UV rays, moisture, sunlight, heat etc. The instruments is equipped with a heavy duty xenon arc bulb which has stable characteristic and helps in easy assessment of polymeric test samples under the influence of environmental factors. The instrument is manufactured according to the guidelines in various standards.

When the industrial polymeric products are exposed to open environment for a long time, this has a negative impact on the quality and lifetime of the products. The environmental factors have a deep impact on the molecular structure as well as the physical & chemical properties of the polymers. This implies that the manufacturers must test the effects of the open environment on quality of the polymeric products to decide their suitability to a particular type of working environments. This can also help them in enhancing the quality of the products by making changes in the composition of the products according to the testing data.

Presto offers highly advanced and high precise UV accelerated weathering testers that are capable enough to provide highly precise testing data about the effect of weathering factors such as moisture, dust, pollution, sunlight, Ultraviolet and so forth. The process of weathering has a great impact on the quality and life of the products and materials that are exposed to open environments. The manufacturers need to test the effect of such environmental factors on the quality of the product and materials. The accelerated weathering tester offered by Presto is one of the most efficient testing instrument that is capable of providing highly accurate evaluation of the behavior of different materials and products in extreme working conditions. The Presto’s weathering tester helps the manufacturers in making essential changes in the manufacturing processes so that the quality of the products could be enhanced and degradation due to weathering could be delayed.
The instrument strictly adheres with following standards. ASTM D 4329, ISO 11507, ISO 4892-1, ISO 4892-3, ASTM D 4587, ASTM G-151, ASTM G-154, BS 2782: Part 5, SAE J2020, JIS D 0205.
The polymers and elastomers have to bear a lot of pressure due to their extended exposure to open environments. The environmental factors such as pollution, dust, moisture, Ultraviolet, heat etc. have a bad effect on the quality and durability of the products. The manufacturers have a great challenge to make their products enduring enough so that they could withstand these effects in a better way so that their products could last long and perform in a superior way in actual working condition. To enhance the quality of the products, first the manufacturers need to test the effects of the environmental factors on the properties of the products and materials so that they can make essential changes to the manufacturing processes to enhance the quality of the products. The Benchtop UV accelerated weathering tester is an ideal instrument for quick, easy assessment of the effects of weathering on the quality of the products. It is an effective and simple testing instrument which can easily replicate the actual working conditions to which the products are subjected to give an idea what would be changes in their properties. The instrument is a must have in any industry where polymeric or elastomeric products are manufactured.
