Xennon arc constuction testing

4ward Testing is proud to announce the launch of our new Xenon Test Chamber allowing us to undertake a full range of accelerated weather testing at our Petworth laboratories. With the latest technology available we can provide our clients with all the data required to allow marketing departments to make accurate, benefit-laden, statements about your products allowing your business to service a larger portion of your target market.

The simplest method to growing your market share is maintaining your existing customer loyalty whilst growing new business. To ensure customer brand loyalty within the manufacturing industry you need to ensure your products provide sufficient sustainability whilst maintaining a continual demand. With definitive standards applied to the manufacturing industry there is a quality benchmark available to allow your business to define an acceptable lifespan for your products that will provide your customer with enough confidence to continue to purchase into your brand's full range whilst ensuring a regular income stream from product re-purchase.

All products will fade, warp and, eventually, fail under heavy ultraviolet, corrosion and weather loads. It is vital to your business to ensure that this failure point is a known quantity allowing your business to make the appropriate decisions to define if, and when, this happens. Decisions made at this point will provide your business with the right insertion point in your chosen market allowing you to compete with the right products each time.

Our Xenon Test Chamber provides a wide range of accelerated weather testing allowing us to establish the optimum integrity for your products whilst ensuring you comply to all the relevant ISO and ASTM standards. At 4ward Testing we pride ourselves on our “Intelligent Testing” system that allows us to provide the earliest possible indication of a product failing to meet any given standard. This allows our customers to make adjustments as early as possible in the testing project providing a lower test project cost compared to other testing laboratories. Our Xenon Test Chamber provides us with the information to allow us to provide your business with specific steps to ensure that your product will meet compliance to allow it to perform as intended in the marketplace.
