Accelerated Laboratory Testing

Both global testing locations follow the ISO 17025 accredited Quality System, ensuring the best care for your projects.

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.
