Outdoor aging test solution for ski equipment


Prolonged sunlight, heat and humidity can cause serious product deterioration, discoloration, cracking, peeling, oxidation or loss of strength, etc. When to choose a new or cheaper one


materials, when you need to improve existing materials, when you need to evaluate how structural changes affect the durability of the product.

Using a UV-accelerated weathering tester, a leader in the ski safety net industry performed laboratory UV exposure testing on two commonly used net materials: nylon (used in their own safety net formulations) and polyethylene (used by its main competitor ).

In their first experiment, they placed the safety net samples in the UV accelerated aging tester, using UVA-340 lamps, set the UV exposure to 60°C for 8 hours, 4 hours dark cycle test at 50 ° C. After only 500 hours of testingthe company found that the nylon material lost only 12% of its strength, while the polyethylene material lost more than 90% of its strength!

Further tests and comparisons and extensive available field data allowed the company to:

1) Demonstrate the sustainability aspects of the safety nets it produced compared to those of its competitors

p > 2) Determine that the accelerated aging test of 1250 hours is equivalent to 5 seasons in Canada, then predict the life of the safety net;

3) Make optimal use of this data and knowledge and enter an entirely new market segment.
