Essais à l’arc au xénon

Micom offre des essais à l’arc au xénon pour simuler l’exposition du soleil, tant à l’intérieur qu’à l’extérieur sur les finis de surface, les revêtements et les polymères. L’équipement utilisé pour faire ce genre de test est appellé un Weather-Ometer®️*. ASTM G155 est une méthode utilisée pour réaliser les essais à l’arc au xénon.  Toutefois, Il existe une panoplie de méthodes d’essai qui requièrent l’utilisation de l’arc au xénon.

La liste des méthodes d’essai suivantes représente en partie les services offerts chez Micom :

Méthodes post-essai en lien avec l’arc au xénon

Une alternative à l’exposition à l’arc au xénon est la méthode ASTM G154 qui utilise une source lumineuse de nature différente. Pour plus d’information concernant les techniques alternatives, veuillez vous référer au lien suivant: Essais de Weathering accéléré.

Finalement, suite à l’exposition selon ASTM G155, différentes mesures peuvent être prélevées afin de quantifier l’impact du vieillissement: Voir Essais ASTM et Essais de matériaux pour plus d’information.
