LINSENGERICHT, Germany – Atlas Material Testing Technology, a leader in weathering technology and services, is offering the latest research and industry knowledge on high irradiance weathering testing.

Accelerated and accurate weathering testing is a critical component in product development for any material expected to withstand the damaging effects of sunlight, heat and moisture. Weathering testing at higher irradiance levels than the normally applied "1-sun" can produce degradation results in a much shorter period of time. Currently, many basic laboratory weathering standards allow up to "3-sun" testing.

Atlas recently launched, a site devoted specifically to high irradiance testing. The site allows visitors to easily contact Atlas and receive further information, including a brochure, case studies and articles on the topic.
