3 Terms
3.1 Weather resistance. refers to anti-weathering ability of specimen under natural
climate conditions such as sunlight, ozone, rain and snow, humidity and temperature.
3.2 Light resistance. refers to that surface of specimen resists degradation.
3.3 Degradation. means the phenomenon that when specimen is exposed in natural
or artificial environment, its performance becomes worse as time goes by.
3.4 Exposure side. refers to the surface that specimen directly touches with sunlight,
ozone, rain and snow.
3.5 Effective side. refers to the surface that has working function.
a. Directly visible surface under service conditions.
b. Surface of parts that is directly influenced by changes of surface condition.
3.6 Standard specimen. refers to the specimen, used for regular observation and
comparison, that is stored in specified conditions.
3.7 Color-fading. refers to changes of specimen test that is caused by changes of color,
brightness and other degradations.
3.8 Contact-pollution. refers to changes caused by different materials’ interaction.
3.9 Dirt. refers to such as harmful gas, organic matter adhering to or permeating to
exposed surface, which can not be cleaned.
3.10 Flaking. means falling off, or expansion of protective film, or adhesive part on the
surface of specimen.
3.11 Applicable reference. refers to test regulation that is determined by use condition
and degree of importance of parts.
For example. ES2 and IG3 (as shown in Table 2 and Table 3).
3.12 Quantity of illumination. refers to amounts of sunlight received by exposed
surface, unit is kcal/cm2.
3.13 Glossiness. based on glossiness of 60° mirror surface, divided as follows.
No-light Below 20%
Semi-gloss Between 20% and 80%
Bright Above 80%
3.14 Specimen. refers to parts or test block prepared according to purpose for test.
3.15 Direct exposure test. is a test that put specimen in natural environment such as
sunlight, wind and rain; degradation degree of its surface coating is changed as time
goes by.
3.16 Exposure test across glass. is a test that specimen in test box is covered by glass
pane for exposure; inspect its degradation degree as time goes by.
3.17 Masking exposure test. a test that specimen is placed under shielding structure,
under the condition that it is avoided from direct influence by sunlight and rain-snow,
the degradation degree of its surface coating is changed as time goes by.
3.18 Immersion exposure test. is a test that partial part of specimen or the whole
specimen is immersed in test solution, placed outdoor; and be put outside, the
degradation degree of its surface coating is changed as time goes by.
3.19 Exposure device. refers to devices such as exposure rack and specimen storage
box that are used for putting specimen.
3.20 Test box. is a container that is used for environmental conditioning, having
ventilation facility; its top part is covered by glass pane.
3.21 Storage box. is a container that is used to place-store specimen.
3.22 Environmental factor. is a generic term of meteorological factors such as air
temperature, insolation, rainfall capacity of exposure environment AND environmental
pollution factors such as amount of coal ash fallen and sulfur dioxide concentration.
3.23 Exposure duration. refers to that time spent by exposure test of specimen.
