Standards for Solar Environmental Stress Testing


Complete form & get free Standards Guide

Solar environmental product testing can be regarded as an adjacent and often complementary part to accelerated xenon weathering. While xenon technology is perfectly suited for qualifying new materials for new products, metal halide solar simulators show their strength in high efficiency combined with realistic solar heat loading.

Metal Halide Solar Simulators allow testing large specimens and are scalable. This makes it a preferred choice for testing complete products or larger components.

In this 8-page Standards Guide you learn about:

  • Difference between xenon and solar environmental testing
  • Filtered metal halide technology
  • Small, large, and drive-in Solar Environmental Chambers
  • Solar radiation reference spectrum
  • Test Methods and the 4 key applications
