Accelerated Weathering

WE TEST EVERYTHING UNDER THE SUN ®

Atlas has pioneered outdoor accelerated testing since their development of the Trac Rac in the early 1900s. Atlas, primarily at its site in Phoenix, offers the variety of outdoor accelerated services that are listed below. 

Ultra-Accelerated Exposure Testing Atlas developed this solar concentrator technology in partnership with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and the Russian Institute of Laser Optical Technology (ILOT) under a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) program. Ultra-Accelerated EMMA®/EMMAQUA® The UA-EMMA outdoor testing device provides approximately 10-12 years of South Florida UV radiation exposure in a single year. Low-Temperature EMMA®/EMMAQUA® The LT-EMMA/EMMAQUA device delivers more than five years of equivalent radiation exposure as would be received in a standard outdoor testing rack in South Florida in a single year, but with much cooler sample temperatures when compared to traditional EMMA/EMMAQUA testing. EMMAQUA® EMMAQUA was developed in the 1960's. Economical, proven and continuously improved for even greater accuracy, EMMAQUA is the most widely used outdoor accelerated weathering test method in the world today. Temperature Controlled EMMAQUA® Temperature controlled EMMAQUA includes static control, dynamic control, night temperature control, and variable irradiance control. We provide a PDF document with details on all control situations. IP/DP Box® The IP/DP (Instrument Panel/Door Panel) Box offers an accelerated temperature limiting under glass weathering method to determine the durability and/or colorfastness of many materials. Atlas Weather Station The Atlas Weather Station is ideal for customers who want to have their own test sites or who want to map various global climates. Three different options are available.
