Atlas Material Testing Technology Exhibits at in-cosmetics 2014

Linsengericht, Germany, January 2014 – Atlas Material Testing Technology, the global leader in weathering technology and services, will exhibit at in-cosmetics 2014, the world’s leading global business platform for personal care ingredients, on April 1-3, 2014 in Hamburg, Germany. The Atlas booth will be located in hall 4, booth G14.

Sunlight and artificial light can cause packaging printing inks to fade, affect colorants in hair dyes, cause “off” odors in products or destroy important nutritional components such as vitamins. Therefore, lightfastness and photostability testing of cosmetics are essential to the success of a product.

With its SUNTEST® family of products, Atlas offers practical, reliable and economical entry-level instruments for lightfastness and photostability testing of smaller specimens such as cosmetics or pharmaceutical drug products.

Atlas will showcase the following:
• SUNTEST CPS+: The 4th generation of the most widely used benchtop xenon instrument in the world. Its compact design, easy handling and proven reliability make it the ideal quality control and R&D screening device for a variety of industries, including cosmetics and pharmaceuticals.
• SUNTEST XLS+: The big brother of the SUNTEST CPS+. This advanced xenon device offers state-of-the-art UV-control for reliable R&D screening tests. An array of optional accessories is available such as water spray, immersion, and refrigeration for expanded testing capabilities. The benchtop design fits into any lab and has an 1100 cm2 exposure area, accommodating multiple flat or 3D samples.
