Accelerated Laboratory Testing

Accelerated Lab
NEW:  Q-Lab Deutschland now offers accelerated testing in a convenient location for European customers.

Contract Laboratory Testing Services

For those who are interested in accelerated weathering, light stability, and corrosion testing but are not yet ready to purchase QUV, Q-SUN, or Q-FOG test equipment, we offer a full range of contract laboratory testing services in our fully-equipped laboratories in Florida and Germany.

Q-Lab weathering, light stability and corrosion tests are used for quality control, material certification, exterior durability studies and predictions. Q-Lab can also act as an unbiased third party wherever third-party verification of test results is required

Fast Results

Although actual outdoor exposures are an ideal way to test your products, sometimes you can't afford to wait a year or two for real-time test results. We can give you fast, and reliable weatherability, lightfastness, colorfastness, and photostability data using our large array of QUV, Q-SUN, Q-FOG and QCT accelerated laboratory testers. Backed by decades of outdoor testing experience, Q-Lab experts can help you set up a successful accelerated laboratory testing program.

Standard & Custom Exposures

Tests and evaluations are performed to appropriate ASTM, ISO, BSI, DIN, JIS, SAE, AATCC, or other standard procedures.  Visit our Standards Page or contact Q-Lab to discuss a particular standard.  We can also perform custom exposures.
