Heat Build Testing

We utilize a range of heat build test methods to keep surface temperatures low & minimize distortion.

As experts in low heat build testing and technology, we realize the importance of lowering overall heat build-up to increase a part’s lifecycle.

Lanier Color introduced low heat build technology to the building products market more than 10 years ago, and we’ve continuously adapted this innovation across a variety of markets and applications.

Low heat build technology reduces overall heat gain and eliminates distortion in dark colors to make the end product more:

  • Cost-efficient
  • Durable
  • Marketable

Our ISO facility lab includes testing methods (in accordance with ASTM standards) such as:

  • Multiple heat build boxes in a controlled climate
  • Full range spectrophotometer for predicted heat build-up values
  • Total Solar Reflectance Measurements (TSR)

These advancements in low heat build technology and testing allow wide use of darker colored plastic products in hot, humid, and high-altitude environments.
