Accelerated UV Testing with Solar Light Company

Solar Light Company is one of the leaders in a variety of light testing services from spectral transmission analysis to spectral scanning of light sources. One popular testing service they have dedicated years of becoming the leader in is accelerated UV testing.


Why is UV Light Testing Important?


Exposure to UV light can have a drastically negative effect on such materials as:

  • Polymers
  • Rubbers
  • Plastics
  • Coatings
  • Paints
  • Labels
  • Textiles
  • Composites
  • Others


We at Solar Light Company provide high-quality testing services that evaluate products or materials with procedures that simulate exposure to UV light. This form of testing evaluates the material samples (which you hand over to us for testing) to the reaction to photo-induced degradation caused by photolysis.


What is Photolysis?


It is defined as a chemical reaction that can affect forms of degradation including but not limited to brittleness, color fastness, cracking and fading caused by exposure to UV radiation.


We offer UV light and weathering testing services for such industries as automotive, aerospace, building products and solar energy and ensure they meet compliance with multiple testing and measurement standards including ASTM G155-07, ASTM D 2565, ASTM D4329-05 and more.
