Solar Light Company, Inc. Announces a Variety of Testing Services Are Available for Customers All over the Globe


Glenside, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/23/2017 -- Serving over 45,000 customers worldwide, Solar Light Company, Inc. is globally recognized as a producer of precision ultraviolet light sources, pyranometers, solar simulators, and radiometers. At their state-of-the-art ultraviolet testing laboratory, they offer accelerated UV testing and much more on a wide variety of materials. Utilizing either xenon arc sources or fluorescent sources of several types, they can test for both indoor and outdoor exposure.

Solar Light Company, Inc. conducts spectral analysis of light sources and detectors. Utilizing advanced spectroradiometers, monochromators, NIST traceable standard lamps, and NIST traceable standard detectors, they provide complete spectroradiometric analyses. This spectral scanning service is used on terrarium lamps, photostability lamps and detectors, tanning lamps, medical light sources, xenon lamps, and weathering chamber lamps.

The company can also administer tests to measure the transmissivity and reflectivity of materials. This is ideal for awning fabrics, garment fabrics, display cases, optical filters, and medical packaging. Like the spectral scanning of light sources and sensors, these spectral transmission and reflection tests are done accordingly: 280-400nm ranges are scanned at 2nm intervals, 250-1100nm are scanned at 5nm intervals, and 280-1100nm are scanned at 10nm intervals.

All tests are completed according to Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) standards AATCC183, BS EN 13758-1 or AS-NZS_4399. This system reveals how effectively fabrics protect against ultraviolet rays. The higher the UPF, the better the garment provides UV protection.

Last, but not least, indoor weathering tests are executed to detect the effects of lighting indoors. Interior furnishings can fade when ultraviolet radiation from the sun passes through windows. Fading also materializes under artificial interior light like incandescent, fluorescent, and flood lights.

To conduct plastics testing, as well as testing on many other materials with the latest technology at a leading global laboratory, call Solar Light Company, Inc. at 215-517-8700 or visit for more information.
