HOMESTEAD, Fla. (Dec. 13)—Q-Lab Weathering Research Service has opened a facility that houses an outdoor exposure testing site and an indoor accelerated testing lab. Q-Lab opened the operation in Homestead after relocating from a Princeton, Fla., facility to accommodate increasing demand for a range of weathering research services. The site features a 30-acre outdoor test field as well as indoor lab facilities including a Q-Sun Xenon Test Chamber, QUV Accelerated Weathering Tester and Q-Fog cyclic corrosion tester, Q-Lab said. Primary customers of the site are manufacturers concerned with lightfastness and durability of products such as coatings, adhesives and sealants.
