Air Cooling Light Fastness Tester (xenon arc)
This machine designed to meet the requirements of ISO 105 B02 and AATCC Test Method 16 standards. It has a rotating specimen rack and provides precise control of critical test parameters including spectrum, irradiance, relative humidity, chamber temperature and black standard temperature.
To determine the resistance of the color of textiles to fade when exposed to artificial light (xenon arc) which is representative of natural daylight.
