Marks & Spencer have officially approved the Apollo Xenon arc light and weather fastness tester of James H Heal and Co Ltd. The Apollo is a highly advanced tester that reproduces sunlight and replicates a wide range of temperatures and humidity levels. Apollo was designed in consultation with industry leaders and is an accurate, reliable instrument with low running costs.

Another of Heal’s instruments to receive Marks & Spencer approval last year was the Thermaplate colour fastness and thermal stability tester. In 2004, M&S also approved a range of Heal’s Quality Assured Consumables, including Multifibre, Crocking Cloth and Grey Scales for staining and changes in colour.
