Atlas Material Testing Technology LLC’s patented temperature- and moisture-controlled EMMAQUA devices, located at the outdoor testing facility in Phoenix, AZ

inPAINT | Dec 2017/Jan 2018

When it comes to exterior work, fade resistance is one of the most important attributes of a coating. But how exactly do manufacturers test for fade resistance when there are only so many hours of sun in a day? For many manufacturers, the answer is EMMAQUA. Short for Equatorial Mount with Mirrors for Acceleration with Water, EMMAQUA concentrates natural sunlight via 10 highly reflective, specially coated mirrors onto painted surfaces with the intensity of approximately eight suns. Plus, the device exposes painted surfaces to the full spectrum of sunlight, making it one of the most realistic accelerated tests available. For manufacturers, this means years of product exposure can be simulated in a significantly shorter time frame.
