What Is The Best Temperature For Accelerated Aging (ASTM F1980) My Product?

This is a common question we are asked by clients that doesn't always have a right or wrong answer. The benefits of aging your product at a higher temperature is that it simulates the aging interval faster, but it has risks to different products.   Everyone wants to age their products at the highest possible temperature that they can, to pull the lead times in as much as possible, but there are risks and trade offs to that. We have had clients age their products at two separate temperatures for the same aging interval, that way they are able to pull their timeline in if the higher temperature products are able to pass the integrity testing.
