Climatic testing

Evaluate the behavior of materials, components and equipment in normal or extreme weather conditions

Over their useful life, materials, components and equipment are subject to multiple environmental conditions that may affect their reliability, behavior and structural integrity. Manufacturers should evaluate the behavior of their products under different conditions in order to meet both the market's requirements and the applicable regulations.
