Atlas Instruments Gain Marks & Spencer Approval

(PresseBox) ( Linsengericht, )
Atlas, a global leader in weathering testing instruments and services, has gained Marks & Spencer approval for utilizing the Atlas Xenotest® 220/220+ and Ci3000+ Fade-Ometer® to meet C9 (Color Fastness to Light) and C9A (Color Fastness to Wet Light) test methods.

Atlas launched two new large capacity textile lightfastness testers, the Xenotest 220 and 220+, in mid 2010. These new Xenotest models both feature premium on-rack light and temperature sensor as well as non-aging optical filter technology. With a generous 38 sample test capacity providing users nearly double the testing capacity in the same footprint compared to predecessor, model Xenotest 150 S+. Coupled with their efficient utility usage, the Xenotest 220/220+ is today's most economical textile available.

Additionally M&S tested the Ci3000+ Fade-Ometer using a newly introduced quartz inner, CIRA on soda lime outer filter combination.

Over the last several months, both instruments underwent approval testing at the INTERTEK laboratory in the UK - Marks & Spencer's preferred accredited laboratory.
