August 9, 2005

Q-Panel Lab Products is offering a new
filter for the Q-Sun xenon test chamber,
designated the Q/B filter. It meets
the spectral requirements specified in
automotive standards SAE J1885 and
SAE J1960. According to the company,
the filter has equivalent transmission
to the quartz inner filter/borosilicate
outer filter combination sold by Atlas
Electrical Devices. The Q-Sun is used
to test products and materials for
weatherability and light stability. It
uses xenon arc lamps to simulate the
entire spectrum of sunlight, including
UV, visible light and infrared.
Different filters are used to achieve an
appropriate spectrum, based on test
protocol or application. More info: QPanel
