Colour fastness to weathering : Xenon arc

This part of ISO 105 specifies a method intended for determining the resistance of the colour of textiles of all kinds except loose fibres to the action of weather as determined by exposure in a cabinet equipped with a xenon arc lamp.
Specimens of the textile are exposed under specified conditions to light from a xenon arc lamp and to water spray. At the same time, eight dyed wool references are exposed to light but are protected from water spray by a sheet of window-glass. The fastness is assessed by comparing the change in colour of the specimen with that of the reference.

  1. As we know the weather test is very important to fabric testing. Water-cooled Light & Weather Fastness Tester , to determine color fastness to light, weather and light aging of various colored textiles, Light and weather fastness tester. If you are interested in it plz go ahead:

  2. Xenon Lamp Weather Resistance Test Chamber, to determine the colorfastness, aging resistance of textiles, plastics, rubber products or materials by objecting to the simulated conditions of nature weather (daylight, rain, temperature, and humidity, etc.).
