Predicting the lifespan of materials used in automotive or industrial rubber components can prove exceptionally challenging thanks to a wide variety of stressors or harsh conditions they may face. The issue is further complicated by environmental conditions, which are far more difficult to predict. A carefully planned testing package executed by artificial weathering experts can provide valuable data that improves the accuracy of lifespan predictions and addresses the unique challenges of rubber product and material development.
In an upcoming 45-minute webinar, Smithers expert Jeremy Elliott covers a wide variety of artificial weathering tests, considerations for post-weathering testing, and a few other things often overlooked that can give you the best possible chance of understanding your material's service life.
Artificial weathering varieties that will be covered:
