The Atlas SUNTEST XXL+ FD is a large state-of-the-art xenon flatbed instrument. It’s completely target designed to meet the testing needs of the FMCG industry, such as drinks, foodstuffs, personal care or household products. XXL+ FD enables consumer goods manufacturers to test their products realistically within very short test times, typically with acceleration factors between 10-30 versus real time. It’s for reliable qualification of stable product formulations, determination of appropriate packaging materials, and supporting product shelflife claims.
