Terminology3.1 DefinitionsThe definitions given in TerminologiesE41, E772, and G113 are applicable to this practice.4. Significance and Use4.1 Significance4.1.1 When conducting exposures in devices that use labo-ratory light sources, it is important to consider how well theaccelerated test conditions will reproduce property changes andfailure modes associated with end-use environments for thematerials being tested. In addition, it is essential to consider theeffects of variability in both the accelerated test and outdoorexposures when setting up exposure experiments and wheninterpreting the results from accelerated exposure tests.4.1.2 No laboratory exposure test can be specified as a totalsimulation of actual use conditions in outdoor environments.Results obtained from these laboratory accelerated exposurescan be considered as representative of actual use exposuresonly when the degree of rank correlation has been establishedfor the specific materials being tested and when the type ofdegradation is the same. The relative durability of materials inactual use conditions can be very different in different locationsbecause of differences in UV radiation, time of wetness,relative humidity, temperature, pollutants, and other factors.Therefore, even if results from a specific exposure test con-ducted according to this practice are found to be useful forcomparing the relative durability of materials exposed in aparticular exterior environment, it cannot be assumed that theywill be useful for determining relative durability of the samematerials for a different environment.4.1.3 Even though it is very tempting, calculation of anacceleration factor relating x h or megajoules of radiantexposure in a laboratory accelerated test to y months or yearsof exterior exposure is not recommended. These accelerationfactors are not valid for several reasons. Acceleration factors are material dependent and canbe significantly different for each material and for differentulations of the same material. Variability in the rate of degradation in both actualuse and laboratory accelerated exposure test can have asignificant effect on the calculated acceleration factor. Acceleration factors calculated based on the ratio ofirradiance between a laboratory light source and solarradiation, even when identical bandpasses are used, do not takeinto consideration the effects on a material of irradiance,temperature, moisture, and differences in spectral power dis-tribution between the laboratory light source and solar radia-tion.NOTE 4If use of an acceleration factor is desired in spite of thewarnings given in this practice, such acceleration factors for a particularmaterial are only valid if they are based on data from a sufficient numberof separate exterior and laboratory accelerated exposures so that resultsused to relate times to failure in each exposure can be analyzed usingstatistical s. An example of a statistical analysis using multiplelaboratory and exterior exposures to calculate an acceleration factor isdescribed by J. A. Simms There are a number of factors that may decrease thedegree of correlation between accelerated tests using labora-tory light sources and exterior exposures.

Original adjunct produced in 2005.9The boldface numbers in parentheses refer to the list of references at the end ofthis standard.G151 1924.1.4.1 Differences in the spectral distribution between thelaboratory light source and solar radiation. Light intensities higher than those experienced inactual use conditions. Test conditions where specimens are exposed con-tinuously to light when actual use conditions provide alternateperiods of light and dark. Specimen temperatures higher than those in actualconditions. Exposure conditions that produce unrealistic tem-perature differences between light and dark colored specimens. Exposure conditions that do not have any tempera-ture cycling or that produce temperature cycling, or thermalshock, or both, that is not representative of use conditions. Unrealistically high or low levels of moisture. Absence of biological agents or pollutants.4.2 Use of Accelerated Tests with Laboratory Light Sources4.2.1 Results from accelerated exposure tests conductedaccording to this standard are best used to compare the relativeperance of materials. A common application is conductinga test to establish that the level of quality of different batchesdoes not vary from a control material with known perance.Comparisons between materials are best made when they aretested at the same time in the same exposure device. Resultscan be expressed by comparing the exposure time or radiantexposure necessary to change a characteristic property to somespecified level. Reproducibility of test results between laboratorieshas been shown to be good when the stability of materials isuated in terms of perance ranking compared to othermaterials or to a control 2, 3; therefore, exposure of a similarmaterial of known perance a control at the same time asthe test materials is strongly recommended.4.2.2 In some applications, weathering reference materialsare used to establish consistency of the operating conditions inan exposure test.4.2.3 Reference materials, for example, blue wool testfabric, also may be used for the purpose of timing exposures.In some cases, a reference material is exposed at the same timeas a test material and the exposure is conducted until there is adefined change in property of the reference material. The testmaterial then is uated. In some cases, the results for the testmaterial are compared to those for the reference material.These are inappropriate uses of reference materials when theyare not sensitive to exposure stresses that produce failure in thetest material or when the reference material is very sensitive toan exposure stress that has very little effect on the test material.NOTE 5Definitions for control and reference material that are appro-priate to weathering tests are found in Terminology G113.NOTE 6Practice G156 describes procedures for selecting and charac-terizing weathering reference materials used to establish consistency ofoperating conditions in a laboratory accelerated test.NOTE 7Results from accelerated exposure tests should only be used toestablish a pass/fail approval of materials after a specific time of exposureto a prescribed set of conditions when the variability in the exposure andproperty measurement procedure has been quantified so that statisticallysignificant pass/fail judgments can be made.5. Requirements for Laboratory Exposure Devices5.1 Light Source5.1.1 The exposure device shall provide for placement ofspecimens and any designated sensing devices in positionswhich provide uni irradiance by the light source.NOTE 8In some devices, several individual light sources are usedsimultaneously. In these devices, the term light source refers to thecombination of individual light sources being used.5.1.2 Manufacturers of exposure devices shall assure thatthe irradiance at any location in the area used for specimenexposures is at least 70 of the maximum irradiance mea-sured in this area. Procedures for measuring irradiance unifor-mity are found in Annex A1.NOTE 9During use, the irradiance uniity in exposure devices canbe affected by several factors, such as deposits, which can develop on theoptical s
