0 ATLAS SOLUTIONS FOR TEXTILE TESTING Area Manager East Europe TEXTILEXPOMOSCOW25th September 2014Michal KALIKArea Manager East EuropeTextile lightfastness testing is about testing the textile colour against the negative effect of daylight. Crucial for the colour fastness properties. The fading of colours is probably something everybody could observe already in his private life. The industry is aware of this problem and improvements are made every day throughout the whole supply chain. All its members test their products using xenon lightfastness testers. Starting with the people making the dyestuffs, over to the ones dyeing the yarns and finally the people making the various products such as garments, fabrics, carpets and others. The most commonly used test methods here are ISO 105-B02 and AATCC TM16.

2 XENOTEST® 220 / 220+ All you Need for Reliable Textile Lightfastness Testing Atlas is excited to introduce two new models, Xenotest 220 and These instruments are the latest Atlas technology for textile, lightfastness testing. They are the result of more than 50 years of experience in the design and manufacturing of Xenon test equipment for the global textile industry and its related industries such as leather and paper.Please follow us on our brief tour to learn about the great benefits that Xenotest 220 has to offer.
3 Lightfastness Testing... Textile lightfastness testing is about testing the textile colour against the negative effect of daylight. Crucial for the colour fastness properties. The fading of colours is probably something everybody could observe already in his private life. The industry is aware of this problem and improvements are made every day throughout the whole supply chain. All its members test their products using xenon lightfastness testers. Starting with the people making the dyestuffs, over to the ones dyeing the yarns and finally the people making the various products such as garments, fabrics, carpets and others. The most commonly used test methods here are ISO 105-B02 and AATCC TM16....testing textiles on their color fastness to Daylight
4 1950: lightfastness test methods specify Xenon light... Over 50 Years of Experience200619841st Xenon unit 1954Atlas® Xenotest 1502000Xenotest 150S+2010Xenotest 220+From the introduction of the very first Xenon Lightfastness instrument by ATLAS - Xenotest 150 in 1954 until today, Atlas has always collaborated with the global textile industry to continuously improve reliability, product performance, and ease-of-use.The Xenotest 220 is ATLAS‘ latest innovation based on air-cooled xenon technology continuing the success path of Xenotest 150. It‘s specially designed only for lightfastness testing – purely an instrument dedicated to the textile industry....Xenon becomes the industry standard
5 Xenotest 220 addresses all your needs Proven DesignStainless SteelProven ControlsXenotest 220 is made of premium stainless steel, combining Atlas’ proven test chamber design with state-of-the-art controls. The result is long-lasting reliability you can count on day after day, essential to each laboratory.Xenotest models are operated all over the world. The typical service life is 15 years or more occassionally reaching more than 25 years.Xenotest is definitely a brand you can trust....Provides Long-Lasting Reliability
6 Xenotest 220 addresses all your needs… On-rack XENOSENSIV® guarantees excellent irradiance and temperature uniformityLightTemperatureTest chamber uniformity is essential to any testing instrument. Each sample should be exposed and tested under the same conditions. Xenotest 220 controls light and temperature within narrow tolerances using proven on-rack Atlas XENOSENSIV sensor technology. The XENOSENSIV is a combined sensor controlling both light and temperature at the sample level, thus guaranteeing narrow tolerances of ±4%. Traditional standards require ±10%.Xenotest 220 offers you the reliability you need to be confident about your test results....offers premium performance
7 Xenotest 220 addresses all your needs… Non-aging for AATCC TM16Non-aging for ISO 105-B02Optical FiltersAtlas‘ premium technology is reflected also by the optical filter systems. There are two filter systems available: one for ISO and another for AATCC test methods. Both match the spectral standard requirements perfectly. Both filter systems are non-aging, which means once installed they last a lifetime. No further maintenance cost or efforts are required apart from occassional cleaning....with premium technology
8 Xenotest 220 addresses all your needs… Xenotest 220 and 220+ come with multiple language capability, making operating and programming easy for everybody right from the start. The large set of languages includes the common Asian languages as well as the most common European languages. Both the touch screen of the premium edition 220+ and the keypad of the 220 are menu-driven and therefore self-explanatory and intuitive to use....It‘s easy to program
9 Xenotest 220 addresses all your needs… Simplify!Go online with Xenotest 220+Xenotest 220+ comes with additional software modules, called add-ons. Three add-ons have been programmed to simplify your lab work once your 220+ is connected to your local network environment. The add-ons include Remote Control, Service, and Online Monitoring. To learn more about these exciting online tools, please have a look at our XenoTouch Add-on presentation available for download....modern technology at its best
10 Xenotest 220 addresses all your needs… Sample holders without screwsStandard cover masks for ISO and AATCC testingNew sample holders without screws allow quick sample preparation. Standard cover masks and samples are simply slided into the holders, saving time and efforts every day. Additionally, holder sizes are compatible to all other Xenotest instruments, allowing always same sample preparation....and is easy to use
11 Xenotest 220 addresses all your needs… 38 samplesXenotest 150 S+22 samples~~Xenotest 220 offers nearly twice the capacity at the same footprint compared to Xenotest model 150 S+. The specimen rack carries 19 double sample holders, allowing 200 to 250 single samples to be tested at once. The larger capacity makes the 220 the ideal standard lightfastness tester for both independent users as well as commercial test labs.By optimizing the test chamber size, costs per sample can now be reduced significantly. Additionally, the 220 uses less power and water, making it one of the most economical, air-cooled rotating rack instrument available.Xenotest 220...economical too!
