The test concerning this method is useful for the “fogging” behaviour determination of organic materials.
This method is originally designed by automotive standards, with the aim of testing leather and fabrics characteristics of creating “Fogging” phenomena in determined ambient conditions.
The term “fogging” regards the condensation of superficial parts (real or imitation leather etc.) of vehicle’s internal trimming on the glasses and, expecially, on the windscreen.
The equipment main frame contains a tank which will be filled with specific glycole liquid, capable of reaching high temperatures.
The leather sample is placed inside each of the 6 standard glasses almost fully immersed inside the high temperature liquid.
A Stainlees stell plates container will be layed upon each glass and will be constantly kept at 20°C by means of constant water flow distribution, guaranteed by a conditioning unit connected to the mainframe. This ambient driven condition will provoke a “Fogging” substrate over the sample surface. The operator will detect such behaviuor either by gravimetric and/or refraction ways.
