They are designed to artificially simulate indoor and outdoor environments such as sunlight, temperature, humidity, and rainfall, accelerating the deterioration of products and materials for prompt prediction of their lifespans. SUGA offers a broad range of products, from the global standard weathering test instruments to the latest super-accelerating models.
The Global Standard Test is world wide authorized tests which are specified in ISO(International Organization for Standardization), ASTM(American Society for Testing and Materials), JIS(Japanese Industrial Standards) and other standards. The spectral power distribution of light sources and the performance of the instrument are specified in these standards. SUGA offers the weathering test instruments applicable to these global standard tests.
Depending on the use and purpose of products and materials, other types of light sources such as fluorescent and mercury lamps are being used in various fields.

Supports and assures the accuracy of the weather meter. Outdoor exposure test is the foundation of the data for weathering test. Everything for weathering test starts here.
As the speed of developing new products increases, the need for shortening the test period increases as well. By taking a variety of approaches to meet these needs, SUGA offers new Super Accelerated Weather Meters. SUGA is also proceeding with research for correlation with outdoor exposure test.
Responding to the diverse demands we receive from various fields, SUGA offers a wide range of corrosion test instruments that test the corrosion resistance of metallic materials and their finished surface, from the basic Salt Spray Test Instrument to more sophisticated Cyclic Corrosion Test Instruments.
The most basic test apparatus to determine the corrosion resistance of the metal and their finishings. Applicable to ISO 09227 and others, SUGA pursues for uniformity in results and reproducibility.
To reproduce the various environment products and materials face in real life, SUGA offers excellent correlation with outdoor exposure results, and acceleration.
SUGA will correspond to various needs such as standard based specification and/or special specification.
Any products and materials around us are exposed to Ozone and corrosive gases. The reliability of the test results depend on the accurate control of the gas concentration, temperature, and humidity. SUGA assures the reliable test results.
SUGA also offers Exaust Air Treatment Unit for Corrosion test instrument and Automatic solution supply unit.
Our testing instruments continue to improve their accurate recreation of real-life environments encountered by materials and products such as automobiles, which are often put to use in severe environments.
SUGA offers high reproducibility of abrasion in practical use. The proportional relationship between the number of abrasion and the mass loss is exceptional.
Reproduce severe environment where automotive encounters, SUGA offers various customized industries to meet demands.
These apparatus test the strength (durability) of dyed textiles against color loss and contamination from various angles such as light, laundering, perspiration, rubbing, and gas.
SUGA offers several instruments that related to the flammability.
SUGA colour appearance products are designed specifically for your applications. The numerical values provide you with the information that you need to make objective, quality decisions.
SUGA offers a wide range of bench top and portable Colour Meter systems to meet your measurement needs.
Measure the Gloss of your samples with our portable units on the production floor, in the laboratory, at your customers’ facility or at your desk. SUGA gloss meters are easy to use, reliable and have excellent long term stability.
SUGA Haze meters are widely used to determine and quantify the optical scattering properties of transparent materials; such as films, glass, plaques and plastic products.
SUGA Image Clarity Meter is used to determine the optical effect of specimen’s surface structure on colour appearance properties. Surface structure effects includes optical phenomenon as clarity, DOI and orange peel.
SUGA manufactures a diverse product line of instruments to assess many different optical properties of specimens. These products include assessing colour appearance analysis of surface reflection and transmission modalities. They are applicable throughout the color supply chain.
