uv-test

UV Testing Laboratory

Have your samples exposed to UV, or full spectrum sunlight to simulate year’s worth of sunlight in days. At Solar Light, we can expose plastics, paints, coatings, textiles, papers, and other materials to UV light to test how they will stand up to years of UV light. Using only Solar Light solar simulators we can expose your samples to the spectrum of natural sunlight with a class “A” spectrum and 5% uniformity, providing the closest spectral output of sunlight that can be simulated by a light source. The accelerated life testing will show how a material will react to long term sunlight exposure. See the list of Test Examples on the tab below to view the range of tests we have done in the past, such as Aerospace, Automotive, Medical consumables and disposables.

Spectral Scanning Services

Test the effects of indoor weathering using our state of the art laboratory equipment, capable of meeting all weathering needs.Fading of interior furnishings is often attributed to ultraviolet radiation (UV) from the sun passing through windows onto interior surfaces. However, UV is not the only portion of the solar spectrum which can damage artwork or furnishings inside buildings. Virtually the whole spectrum is of concern, which is why long term exposure to solar radiation should be limited. Fading can also occur due to exposure on artificial interior light sources such as fluorescent, incandescent and flood lights.

spectral-trans

Spectral Transmission and Reflection Testing

Solar Light can provide spectral analysis of detectors, light sources, and the transmissivity and reflectivity of materials. Using advanced spectroradiometers, monochromators, NIST traceable standard lamps, and NIST Traceable standard detectors, Solar Light provides absolute spectroradiometric analyses. Ranges from 280-400nm are scanned at 2nm intervals, 250-1100nm at 5nm intervals and 280-1100nm are scanned at 10nm intervals

upf

UPF Evaluation of Fabrics and Materials

This is the Measurement of UV Transmission of fabrics and Materials affected by UV Exposure using in vitro methods, to establish the UPF value of the test fabric or material.
