Life expectancy is a critical factor in the design and production of industrial decals, many of which are exposed to harsh outdoor conditions throughout their lifetimes. Manufacturers and suppliers alike want to ensure these graphics last as long as the products to which they’re attached—but predicting the effects of real-life weather exposure on materials, inks and adhesives can be a challenge.

That’s where outdoor testing and accelerated weathering processes come into play. Companies can request proof of the “weather-ability” of the materials used to create their OEM, fleet, corporate vehicle and corporate identity markings, as well as control panels and fascias and warning labels and signage. The results provide powerful data about life expectancy in real-world environments.
