The Xenon Test Chamber simulates sunlight, heat and water cycles using xenon arc lamps to replicate full-spectrum sunlight. This realistic simulation is vital for assessing color change, lightfastness and material degradation accurately. Proper light filtering ensures the right spectrum for each application, influencing the speed and type of degradation. The chamber also introduces moisture through water spray, creating thermal shock and mechanical erosion. Controlled humidity and temperature, monitored by a black panel temperature sensor, further contribute to accurate material testing.
