Solar Light Company

Pennsylvania Company Provides Equipment and Services in Material Fade Testing


Glenside, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/01/2015 -- One of the biggest benefits to the spring and summer seasons is the prolonged hours of intense sunlight. Unfortunately, prolonged exposure to UV lighting can cause a fading effect on a variety of different materials. The Solar Light Company is a Glenside, Pennsylvania-based organization providing only the highest grade of equipment dedicated to the measurement and effects of solar radiation on different fabrics through in-vitro testing and experimentation.

As materials are exposed to sunlight, their color and structural integrity can accrue damage from the long-term effects of solar radiation. In preparation for these potential damages, manufacturing and retailing companies should investigate how their materials will fare under the sun over varying periods of time. That is where the services of Solar Light come in; they provide all of the equipment needed for corporations to conduct solar radiation tests.

The Solar Light Company also provides reliable, high-end materials testing for a wide variety of products, including the:

- Spectral light transmission properties of the material in question.
- Spectral responses of detectors/equipment.
- Accelerated ultraviolet exposure testing for materials.
- A light source's spectral output levels.

Through years of experience and scientific expertise in the photovoltaic industry, Solar Light's materials testing can simulate a wide variety of factors. They can simulate entire years of solar radiation and UV exposure based on different areas of the world, whether it's in a tropical area or colder climates. Solar Light will also provide photographs of the material being tested both before and after testing. In addition to this, they test the level of fading that the color of the materials has undergone after exposure to solar radiation.

The Solar Light Company's facilities are located on Glenside Avenue in the heart of Glenside, Pennsylvania. Aside from materials testing, they provide high-end radiometers, solar simulators and solar radiation sensors for commercial use.
