Essais QUV

Le service d’essai QUV est utilisé afin de simuler l’exposition du soleil tant à l’intérieur, qu’à l’extérieur sur les finis de surface, les revêtements et les polymères. ASTM G154 est une méthode utilisée lors des essais de QUV. Toutefois, il existe une panoplie de méthodes d’essai qui requièrent l’utilisation du QUV.
