n A test for evaluating the light stability of plastics, employing a xenon-gas-discharge lamp of special design that emits radiation duplicating the spectrum of natural sunlight more closely than most artificial sources. ASTM lists two such tests for plastics, D 4459 with dry specimens and G 26, in which the specimens may or may not be sprayed with water.
