ASTM G154-12 PDF

Scope 1. This practice is intended to reproduce the weathering effects that occur when materials are exposed to sunlight either direct or through window glass and moisture as rain or dew in actual usage. This practice is limited to the procedures for obtaining, measuring, and controlling conditions of exposure. Note 1: Practice G describes general procedures to be used when exposing nonmetallic materials in accelerated test devices that use laboratory light sources.

These exposures may include a means to introduce moisture to the test specimen. Exposures are not intended to simulate the deterioration caused by localized weather phenomena, such as atmospheric pollution, biological attack, and saltwater exposure. Alternatively, the exposure may simulate the effects of sunlight through window glass. Typically, these exposures would include moisture in the form of condensing humidity.

Note 2—Caution: Refer to Practice G for full cautionary guidance applicable to all laboratory weathering devices. Therefore, no reference shall be made to results from the use of this practice unless accompanied by a report detailing the specific operating conditions in conformance with the Section It is recommended that at least three replicates of each material evaluated be exposed in each test to allow for statistical evaluation of results.

Scope 1. This practice is limited to the procedures for obtaining, measuring, and controlling conditions of exposure. A number of exposure procedures are listed in an appendix; however, this practice does not specify the exposure conditions best suited for the material to be tested. Note 1—Practice G describes performance criteria for all exposure devices that use laboratory light sources.

This practice replaces Practice G53, which describes very specific designs for devices used for fluorescent UV exposures. The apparatus described in Practice G53 is covered by this practice. Different types of fluorescent UV light sources are described. More specific information about methods for determining the change in properties after exposure and reporting these results is described in ISO It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

Nar Such outcomes cannot be quickly obtained in gg settings; therefore, these weatherization tests are invaluable in timely product development. Annex A1 states how to determine relative spectral irradiance. Following are some representative exposure conditions. These numbers represent the characteristic nominal wavelength in nm of peak emission for each of these lamp types.

When rays of sunlight—particularly UV rays—bombard a surface, they degrade smaller pigment particles, changing the surface color and creating a chalky effect. Cracking, peeling, de-glossing, oxidation, and tensile weakening are additional outcomes of exposure; sometimes such deterioration can even occur through window glass. Moisture takes its own toll on surfaces, and the combination of sunlight and moisture can amplify damage, costing millions of dollars of depreciation each year. The ASTM G and G tests empower manufacturers to design products that can withstand exposure to sunlight and moisture. Ultimately, the most realistic way to test for weathering is to allow the product to degrade in real time, with outdoor testing panels. In the U.
