Q-Lab offers a multitude of options for specimen mounting in the QUV, Q-SUN, and Q-FOG testers.
Many materials, including coatings, plastics, textiles, and films, are often tested as thin flat panels, which are easily accommodated by using standard, flat specimen holders. Three-dimensional or odd-shaped specimens can often be mounted using specialty holders. We also offer custom specimen holders for unique needs.
Browse through our gallery of pictures which give examples of a variety of different specimen holders and mounting techniques.
Special care should always be taken to ensure that specimens are mounted per Q-Lab’s mounting guidelines, since mounting can affect test results.
