QUV testing simulates ultraviolet (UV) rays in a chamber that also has temperature
, and irradiance controls. Measurements are taken pre- and post-test to assess color fastness and light fastness, as well as other changes in physical properties
. Testing can also be used to predict whether or not UV exposure will cause staining. QUV testing is especially crucial for products that will be used outdoors.
