James Heal Debuts TruFade Light Fastness Tester

James H. Heal & Co. Ltd., United Kingdom, has introduced its TruFade Light Fastness Tester for lightfastness testing on textiles, leather and other materials.

Features include: a height that allows for a clear view and easy lamp changing; a wide-opening test chamber that allows for samples to be comfortably loaded and unloaded; an easy-access water chamber that facilitates cleaning and filling; a sample management system that allows for individual holders to be held and changed with the touch of a button while other tests are performed; and an auto-stop facility to automatically set stopping time.

The tester also features touch-screen controls similar to a smartphone menu; and the touch screen's angle may be adjusted for optimal viewing. The tester also features software that tracks the samples' fading progress, and lamp and filter life; and uses a traffic-light system that allows statuses to be viewed at a glance.

TruFade's triangular sample holders allow for up to 27 specimens to be tested simultaneously, offering an exposure area totaling 1,640 square centimeters.
