Xenon Arc Light Fastness Tester with TestWise Touch™
Xenon Arc Light Fastness Tester with TestWise Touch™.
TruFade is used to test the colour fastness to light of textiles, leather and other materials, simplifying a difficult area of light fastness testing to deliver consistent and accurate results. Now with onboard Weathering.
TruFade can test a range of standards and retailer test methods, including ISO 105-B02 and ISO 105-B04.
Simple to use TestWise™software - for faster, more intuitive testing. Routine testing can be started with only three touches of the screen, therefore TruFade can be operated with minimal training, saving time and reducing the potential for operator error.
Onboard weathering for a range of testing, including AATCC 169 and ISO 105-B04.
A 2200W long lasting xenon lamp is combined with current filter technology to get as close as possible to the spectrum of natural sunlight, to replicate the damage sunlight causes to textiles worn or used outdoors.
Increase the usable exposure space to up to 1640cm2, so more testing can be done at once.

TruFade is James Heal’s Xenon Arc Light Fastness Tester with onboard weathering, that features a 2200W, long-lasting xenon lamp. A Light Fastness test measures the resistance of pigmented or printed materials to colour change or even fading, due to exposure to sunlight or even an artificial light source. Materials that TruFade can test include:
The most common scales and test materials used to test light fastness are Blue Wools, which are individually dyed wool pieces, each with a different degree of fastness to light. TruFade’s high performance, long lasting, air-cooled xenon lamp works in “controlled irridance” and “blue wool” mode, which comply with international standards for textiles, leather and other materials. The TruFade design of the specimen holders ensured they are closer to the xenon lamp, making it more effective, therefore extending its lifespan.
A pull-out water tank which is stored tidily behind the front panel of the instrument makes cleaning and filling TruFade an easy task.
