Atlas Material Testing Technology LLC produced an interactive reference guide and educational CD about its premier series, which predicts service life of paint and coatings, plastics, packaging, textiles, and building materials. The interactive CD is divided into sections that provide detailed information on comparing instruments, specific features, installing and setting up the instruments, running tests, and scheduled maintenance procedures. Video and flash animation demonstrations show how the Weather-Ometers’ inner components work to simulate outdoor weathering with accelerated, uniform exposures of all tested samples. Touchscreen and various controller functions are also reviewed, as well as an in-depth look at xenon lamps, filter combinations and assemblies. An overall instrument comparison chart is available for viewing, as well as feature-by-feature comparisons such as total exposure area, temperature and humidity ranges, and the footprint of each instrument. Instructions on preparing for installation, assembly, start-up, loading standard tests, and irradiance calibration are included.
