DuPont Weathering Systems Tests Degradation from UV

May 2, 2007

DuPont Weathering Systems (DWS) relies on south Florida’s climate to test the exposure limits of everything from car paint and golf balls to hair dye. DWS has been in the business of exposing, measuring and analyzing the effects of weather on products of all kinds for nearly 80 years. The company’s exposure tests last anywhere from a few weeks to several years on a 10-acre site near Hialeah, a Miami suburb. Its location in a quiet, residential area, away from freeways and major air routes, enhances the accuracy of testing because there is little environmental fallout that could skew results.

DuPont provides weathering studies for many of the company’s own businesses, as well as for independent testing laboratories, and is receiving new challenges from companies whose products must survive the ravages of sun, heat and humidity.
