Outdoor Exposure Rack

Q-Rack outdoor exposure rack kits from Q-Lab Corporation are the same design racks we have used for years at Q-Lab Weathering Research Service in Florida and Arizona. Versatile, reliable and affordable, Q-Racks give you an ideal way to supplement your current testing program with additional data. They meet many ISO, ASTM, SAE and other requirements for outdoor testing.



Q-RACK Outdoor Exposure Racks
Q-RACK outdoor exposure rack kits are available in two types: direct exposure and under glass exposure.

In direct exposure racks, specimens are directly exposed to the environment.  It is the most common method for testing coatings, inks, plastics, or finishes used outdoors.  Most typical test specimens can be easily mounted on a Q-RACK direct exposure system.  Our direct exposure rack kits meet the requirements of ISO 877-2 Method A, ASTM G7, ASTM D4141, or SAE J1976.  Be sure to visit our Standards Page for other information about relevant standards for Q-RACK systems or our other products and services.

Under glass exposure racks are primarily used to test automotive interior materials.  Specimens are exposed to sunlight behind special glass panels.
