Accelerated Aging Time (AAT) Calculator

Reference ASTM F1980-16

Desired Real Time (RT): months

Accelerated Aging Temperature (TAA): °C

Notes: WESTPAK does not recommend aging packaging materials at temperatures exceeding +60°C.
Common AATs are +50°C, +55°C and +60°C.

Ambient Temperature (TRT): °C

Notes: This temperature is typically between +20°C to +25°C.
A temperature of +25°C is a more conservative approach.

Aging Factor (Q10):

Note: This factor is typically between 1.8 to 2.5 with a value of 2.0 being the most common value.

Calculated Accelerated Aging Time (AAT): days

Note: The calculated AAT is typically rounded up to the nearest whole day.
