Typical Material Spectral Transmission Tests include:
- UVA, UVB, and UVC Range: Tested at 290 – 400 nm in 1 nm steps
- Visible Range: Tested at 400 – 700 nm in 10 nm steps
- Double Monochromator: UVC, UVB, UVA, Visible and IR from 250 nm to 1800 nm.
- Under a wide variety of possible illuminants:
- Illuminant A, B, C, D65
- ACD65, Fcw, TL84, Ultralume
- D50, D60, D75, F02, F07, F11, ILA, and ILC
Typical materials tested include:
Have your awning materials tested for spectral transmission of solar light to ensure they do not transmit high levels of harmful wavelengths. Testing for UVA, UVB, UVA+B and visible ranges are available.
We can expose fabrics used for outdoors to measure the amount of radiation that is allowed to pass through by the particular material.
Spectral transmission through the glass or plastic covers of display cases and cabinets is measured to assess the amount of radiation that may reach the exhibits enclosed, and assess the potential risks of fading or other damage that may be caused as a result.
Have your optical filters measured to ensure that they are performing properly, and that they are blocking or transmitting the spectrum within specification.
Test your medical packaging materials for the effects of spectral radiation when stored on shelves under artificial light, or from natural sunlight passing through windows.
