About Atlas

For more than 90 years, Atlas has pioneered innovations in the way companies test the durability of their products.

From our first instrument in 1915 — the Solar Determinator — which simulated the fading effect the sun has on fabric, to today's comprehensive network of weathering testing instruments and services, our focus has remained the same:

"Providing our customers with sophisticated technology and advanced testing solutions to determine how long their products will last. As a result, they can reach their ultimate goals: a quality product, a competitive edge, a faster time to market."

Atlas’ corporate headquarters and manufacturing facilities for its internationally accepted Weather-Ometer®, Xenotest®  and SUNTEST® line of test instruments are located in Chicago, Illinois USA with its European headquarters located in Linsengericht, Germany.

With Atlas Material Testing Technology’s combined experience and expertise in weathering instruments and testing, custom capabilities, consulting and global support, our clients receive assistance in all areas related to natural and laboratory weathering and material testing solutions. We work together to provide our clients with test programs that will supply the data they need to make informed material performance decisions.
