Color Fastness to Light Tester AATCC TM16 E Test Method for Color Fastness to Light Exposure Conditi


The lightfastness tester is a household experimental device independently developed and produced by our company, which is used to quickly test the lightfastness of dyes, textiles and other materials.

The AATCC TM16 test method provides the general principles and procedures commonly used in determining the color fastness of textile raw materials. This test is applicable to all types of textile raw materials, as well as dyes, finishing agents and treatment agents to be applied to textile raw materials.

The exposure conditions of the AATCC TM16 E detection method are as follows:

1. Irradiance is controlled at 1.10 W/m2/nm@420 nm;

2. The window Glass filter: continuous light at a black panel temperature of 63°C;

3. The air temperature in the box is 43°C, and the relative humidity is 30%;


4. The position of the sample remains unchanged.

Main parameters:

01. Light source: a 6500W water-cooled xenon lamp tube;

02. Spectral range: full spectrum sunlight;

03. Irradiation intensity closed-loop control range: (307~13


56)W/m2 (300~800nm) (Boro/Boro internal and external filters, see example for others);

04. Irradiation control accuracy: set value ±0.1 W/m2;

05. Uniform irradiation intensity on the sample surface: ≦±4%;

06 Irradiation control points: 340nm, 420nm, 300-400nm, 400-750nm, etc. are optional;

07. Closed control range for blackboard temperature: BST: 40~120℃; BPT: 40~110℃;

08. Can hold samples Number of clips: 65, 3 layers in total;

09. Total exposure area: 6500cm2.
