Standard Test Method to Test the Effect of Exposure of Fluorescent Ultraviolet Condensation Exposures on Paint & Coatings

The test method explains the ability of coating and plating to resist deterioration of optical and physical properties caused by exposure to heat, light and water that can be imperative for various applications. This practice is planned to stimulate property changes related with end-use conditions, which includes the effects of moisture, sunlight, and heat. The exposure used in the test method is not planned to reproduce the corrosion caused by localized weather phenomenon like atmospheric pollution, saltwater exposure, and biological attack.
