Weathering tests

PolyTech’s accredited test center in Bramming, Denmark, performs a variety of weathering tests by simulating a range of the weather conditions that could affect your wind turbines.

The advanced weathering tests can, for instance, be used to analyse the strength and endurance of materials, and to provide you with a solid basis for selecting the best materials for a given environment.

 

RAIN EROSION

  • DNVGL-RP-0171
    Recommended practice using rotating apparatus to test liquid impingement erosion 
  • ASTM G73-10
    Standard test method using rotating apparatus for liquid impingement erosion 

 

XENON TEST CHAMBER

  • ISO 16474
    Paint and varnishes - Methods of exposure to laboratory light sources
  • ISO 4892-2
    Plastics - Methods of exposure to laboratory light sources - part 2 Xenon-arc lamps
  • ASTM G155-13
    Standard practice for operating Xenon Arc light apparatus for exposure of non-metallic materials

 

GLOSS

  • ISO 2813
    Paint and varnishes - Determination of gloss value at 20°, 60° and 85°

 

OFFSHORE

  • ISO 20340
    Paint and varnishes – Performance requirements for protective paint systems for offshore and related structures. Please note that the standard refers to the outdated ISO 11507 standard for the UV exposure. This standard has been replaced by ISO 16474 - therefore, ISO 16474 is used instead of ISO 11507

 

SALT SPRAY

  • ISO 9227
    Corrosion tests in artificial atmospheres – Salt spray tests
