Our key focus is to deliver outstanding quality while meeting highly customized demands for solar solutions. In order to meet European quality standards – we carefully inspect every product we manufacture with our in-house photovoltaics testing laboratory capacity.
Standards we meet
Metsolar testing covers various types of tests – from testing quality of the materials being used in the process to wet leakage current, UV tests and more.
UV Exposure test
UV exposure can cause damage to various materials and impact their performance. Many factors, including colour change, delamination, fading, yellowing, cracking, peeling, brittleness and loss of strength can all occur under UV exposure. The purpose of this test is to determine if exposure of particular materials to radiation over an extended period of time causes any degradation in their properties.
Climatic tests simulate an impact of real time ageing over shorter time and allow the manufacturer to predict the real time performance of the product or material. The test chambers are available for basic temperature and humidity tests to accelerated ageing testing in a variety of specimens’ sizes. Tests covers temperatures from -72°C to +180°C and relative humidity testing from 5% to 97% above 25°C temperature.
Wet leakage current test
This test is designed to detect currents on electrical systems, equipment or insulating materials exposed to moisture, humidity and for determination of product insulation quality (damaged insulation, stray wire strands, conductive or corrosive contaminants and cable fractures).
