UV Protected Artificial Plants?
UV resistance is the ability of a product to fend off damage from sunlight exposure. It is an essential feature especially in plants destined to be outside, where the artificial greenery might be exposed to unfavorable weather conditions. The stronger the sunlight, the more destructive it is to artificial plants and can significantly reduce their lifespan. It is thus of utmost importance to take into consideration the guaranteed level of UV resistance when purchasing artificial plants. What are the advantages of a high UV resistance in artificial greenery then?
Advantages of UV protected artificial plants
- Resistant to fading and cracking
- Flawless, fresh look season after season
- Longer lifespan
What is the UV 5000H Test?
Artificial plants are prone to damage from harsh sunlight when placed outside. A good UV resistance makes artificial plants retain their fresh, verdant look and provide great user experience over many years. For this reason, quality artificial plant manufacturers always attach great importance to the UV stability of their products and make sure they are UV treated.
EdenVert’s products pass the UV 5000H test to ensure our artificial plants won’t succumb to degradation from harsh sunlight exposure. What is the UV test then? The proper full name of it is UV-Condensation Exposures Test. During its course, samples of EdenVert’s products are subject to a 5000-hour weathering test according to the standard of ASTM G154: 2016 by Intertek, where they have to withstand exposure to nature’s forces. The samples emerge from the test in a perfect condition, demonstrating great durability and stability of color. Such a result indicates an excellent UV stability worthy of your trust.
Artificial Plants UV Protected?
Artificial plants are mostly made of a material called polyethylene (PE for short). This material itself is not UV resistant resulting in discoloration, fading and cracking after a prolonged exposure to UV rays.
What gives Edenvert’s artificial plants such an outstanding UV resistance? It comes down to two factors. Firstly, our products are manufactured using 100% pure and fully recyclable materials. Secondly, we utilize the best UV inhibitors to guarantee the materials are going to fend off damage from prolonged exposure to sunrays.
Ourdoor UV Protected Plants
Different kinds of artificial plants have varying levels of UV stability. Let’s take a look at two kinds of artificial greenery according to their UV stability:
I UV protected artificial plants
This category indicates the highest level of UV protection in artificial plants. Such plants are unlikely to fade or crack even after a prolonged strong sunlight exposure, owing to the UV resistant ingredients added to the raw materials during the manufacturing process.
II Non-UV protected artificial plants
The lifespan of non-UV protected artificial greenery is in most cases much shorter than that of their UV treated counterparts. That is due to non-UV protected plants being much more susceptible to damage and deterioration from nature’s forces. Unlike the substandard manufacturers unable to provide the UV test report of their artificial plants, EdenVert gives you peace of mind offering only the best products abiding to strict quality standards, which come with a warranty of five to eight years.
How Long do EdenVert Artificial Plants Last?
This is a question frequently asked by our customers, prompted to a big extent by the climatic changes and bouts of extreme weather conditions during recent years. They want to know how long they can expect their artificial hedges, fences and topiaries to remain in flawless condition. The lifespan of artificial greenery is to a big extent correlated with the material they are made of, and particularly whether that material has been UV treated. A considerably longer service life can be expected of plants made of specific synthetic materials which have undergone UV treatment. EdenVert’s artificial plants pass the UV 5000H test conducted by an independent third party laboratory, which gives us confidence to provide product warranty for the period of five to eight years.
