Description / Abstract:



1. Scope

1.1 This practice covers the basic principles and operating procedures for using fluorescent ultraviolet (UV) and condensation apparatus to simulate the deterioration caused by sunlight and water as rain or dew.

1.2 This practice is limited to the method of obtaining, measuring, and controlling the conditions and procedures of exposure. It does not specify the exposure conditions best suited for the material to be tested. Specimen preparation and evaluation of the results are covered in ASTM test methods or specifications for specific materials.

1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.

1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
