Weathering Studies

Polymers have to perform in a variety of hostile conditions which varies from very cold to very hot & humid. SRI has infrastructure and expertise to carry out weathering studies in artificially simulated conditions of exposure to ultraviolet rays.

SRI has worked on weathering studies of:

  • EPDM/PVC compositions in solar cell
  • EPDM/PP compositions for automotive applications
  • Weather resistant PVC compositions for cooling towers
  • Neoprene coated nylon fabric
  • HDPE woven sacks
  • Color fastness of coatings & textiles
  • Optical lenses
