Q-Lab's European Accelerated Lab Is Now Fully Accredited

Posted: 12/19/2012

Q-Lab, the worldwide leader in weathering test equipment and exposure testing, is proud to announce that their accelerated testing laboratory in Saarbrücken, Germany is now accredited to ISO 17025. 

Q-Lab welcomes the approval following a comprehensive audit by A2LA (American Association for Laboratory Accreditation), one of the world’s premier laboratory accreditation bodies. 

Q-Lab's European Accelerated Lab opened in 2012, and provides cost-effective accelerated weathering and corrosion testing to customers across all of Europe.  The lab features multiple QUV, Q-SUN and Q-FOG test chambers.  Color, gloss and visual evaluation reports are also available.  The lab replicates many of the same capabilities as Q-Lab’s ISO 17025 accredited accelerated lab in Florida.  A copy of the Scope of Accreditation may be downloaded from Q-Lab’s website.

ISO 17025 specifically assesses those important factors relevant to a laboratory's ability to produce reliable, accurate test and calibration data, including: 

  • technical competence of the staff
  • conformance to published standards
  • traceability of measurements and calibrations to national standards
  • suitability, calibration and maintenance of test equipment; quality assurance of test and calibration data
  • testing environment, and specimen handling and transportation

Customers across Europe now have a new option for reliable and cost-effective accelerated weathering and corrosion testing from “the most trusted name in weathering.”
