When new products and materials are developed it is often important
to determine how they will perform when exposed to the weather. Will
they fade, lose strength, crack, peel, chalk or rust? Or, will they
retain a reasonable percentage of original appearance and physical
properties? Will your product last outdoors? Don't guess when you
can test at Q-Lab.
High-intensity sunlight, high temperatures, abundant rainfall and very high humidity combine to create the harsh climate that makes Miami the ideal location for testing exterior durability. Florida is also an excellent site for testing mildew resistance.
Q-Lab Florida is located in the only subtropical region in the continental United States .
For a complete outdoor testing program, many companies test their products in both Florida and Arizona.
