Atlas Introduces Two-Tier Rack For Ci3000+ Fade-Ometer®

Chicago-based Atlas Material Testing Technology LLC has added a two-tier rack option to its Ci3000+ Fade-Ometer® xenon weathering instrument. The option increases the Ci3000's capacity by 50 percent, from 2,188 square centimeters (cm 2) to 3422 cm 2. Unlike typical xenon textile testers that have two tiers of specimens arranged vertically, Atlas' innovative design combines two sample holders in its trademark inclined position, offering unequaled irradiance uniformity across the entire vertical exposure area, according to the company.

Each specimen's opening measures 4 cm by 14.5 cm, providing plenty of space to take instrumental color measurements. A standard insert allows one portion to be easily hidden for visual color evaluations. The two-tier rack option also can be retrofitted to existing Ci3000+ instruments.

"The Ci3000 is one of the most recognized lightfastness testing instruments for textile testing," said Matthew McGreer, global product manager, Atlas Material Testing Technology. "With this product enhancement, we met our design goals of offering customers increased capacity without sacrificing Atlas' long-standing reputation of quality and uniformity."
