Simulates extreme environmental conditions encountered inside a vehicle due to sunlight (UV), heat and humidity. If present, harmful effects on a dash trim part can be observed such as fading, cracking and delaminating.
Dash trim parts are put through various burn and flame tests to ensure compliance with Federal Motor Vehicles Safety Standard (FMVSS) #302.
After a dash trim part is impacted with an object, its resistance and/or failure to breakage is observed.
the effects of common nicks and scratches that can occur on interior trim parts during normal operation are simulated after 1000 cycles of abrasion testing.
Common fluids used for automotive applications such as gasoline, motor oil, brake fluid, engine coolant and washer fluid are applied separately to the clear coat, looking for harmful effects such as fogging, discoloration, smearing and grazing.
Moisture meter testing, gloss meter testing and color match testing are other test that ensure our products meet the quality standards that are our mission.
