Fog

Fog testing is a procedure performed in order to determine the tendency of interior materials to produce a light scattering film on a glass surface in a controlled environment. ARDL offers fog testing to measure the performance of polymeric materials when exposed to controlled environments designed to mimic real world applications. Performance criteria includes the outgassing of volatile and semi-volatile gasses when exposed to elevated temperatures, test solutions and wetness. ARDL’s testing follows ASTM, ISO, DIN and automotive standards.
