  • Accelerated Indoor Light Testing

    Login to view prices

    Solar Light Company, Inc. provides Accelerated Indoor Light Testing services for indoor exposure of items such as medical packaging and disposables, plastics (including vinyls, PE, ABS, acrylics, polycarbonates, PET, HIPS, and other synthetic materials,) paints, coatings, textiles, inks, dyes, papers (including cardboards and wallpapers,) and any other materials which are subject to degradation inside. Our state of the art laboratory uses fluorescent sources of several types, depending on the customer’s unique requirements. In many cases, we can expose samples to a year’s worth of interior lighting conditions in only a few days, objectively determining how a material reacts to those long term lighting conditions.

  • Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) Test

    Login to view prices

    Solar Light performs accurate UPF testing for clothing and fabrics to all major worldwide standards: AATCC 183, BS EN 13758-1, GBT18830-2009, and NZS 4399 – please advise which you need, and we will perform the testing accordingly. We can include a UPF Certification Report optionally which details the specific measurements of your samples, as well as equipment used in the testing, and all relevant data points. (Please note: Some of the standards require laundering the article prior to testing.) Typical turnaround is only a few days after we receive the prepared samples to test.

    UPF Testing is $250.00 for the first two samples, and $75.00 for each additional sample. A UPF Certificate Report covering all samples tested is optional, for $75.00 additional. Please select from the Testing Options below. Preferred sample size is 5×5 inches (or 13 x 13 cm). All testing is performed dry, and any samples sent should be pre-laundered if the UPF standard selected calls for it.
