The QUV Accelerated Weathering Tester features a new controller that is designed to be even more functional and easy to use.  Now every QUV features: storage of 10 different test cycles—commonly used ISO and ASTM exposure cycles are already preprogrammed to save time; built-in computerized data logging—Quick and easy connections are now standard for attaching one or more QUVs to a personal computer (PC) or to a local area network (LAN). The user interface of our new free software allows easy data logging, in either tabular or strip chart format and automatic lab temperature sensing—when any fault occurs, the lab temperature is automatically recorded and displayed to aid in troubleshooting.  

The QUV has been used to test the weatherability of coatings for nearly three decades.    It allows scientists to simulate the damage caused by short wave UV.  Alternating cycles of UV, moisture and high temperature are used to simulate the effects of sunlight, rain and dew.
