CHICAGO – Atlas Material Testing Technology is introducing the latest technology for ultra-accelerated exposure testing. This new outdoor testing device can provide approximately 63 years of South Florida UV radiation exposure in a single year.

The ultra-accelerated device tracks the sun while concentrating reflected sunlight on test specimens mounted in a target area. The patented mirror system used in the ultra-accelerated concentrator has very high reflectance in the UV and near-visible wavelength ranges, while attenuating reflectance in the longer wavelength visible and IR portions of the solar spectrum. This technology allows for very high concentrations of UV energy without excessive heating of test samples.
