Atlas Announces Workshop

A new one-day workshop, Sample Preparation and Evaluation, will be launched in 2012 at the Atlas offices in Linsengericht Germany. Dates will be posted on the Atlas website.

The workshop is a course designed for those who prepare, test and evaluate test samples. It will address the importance of sample selection and preparation, as well as sample replication. In addition, the workshop intends to guide laboratory staff through cleaning and visual evaluation methods. An in-depth examination of various weathering defects and how they can be evaluated and rated according to both reference scales and reference materials will also take place. Additional topics will include weathering defects/changes (general appearance, color change, gloss reduction, etc.). Participants are requested to bring their own samples.

The workshop includes hands-on training of visual evaluation methods using controlled light conditions for both outdoor and laboratory weathering and light fastness testing.
