Fogging Testers

Fogging testers measure the amount of evaporation produced by the volatile components from automatic interior materials. Samples are heated in glass beakers, where any volatile constituent within the sample will condense onto the glass plate. This condensation is then measured and compared to samples of a known fogging value. Fogging testers can also incorporate aluminum foil discs, where the weight of these discs following the same condensing process is measured and compared with the weight of the discs without the presence of the condensate. Fogging testers provide an accurate laboratory technique to ensure the driving safety of the automobiles in which these materials are present.
