Solar radiation testing involves understanding the thermal and photochemical degradation effects of sunlight on materials and components.
Solar radiation testing involves understanding the thermal and photochemical degradation effects of sunlight on materials and components. This testing helps make decisions regarding material selection, manufacturing, and intended use of finished products. UV exposure can significantly damage non-metallic materials like change in strength and elasticity, change in electrical and electronic components, pressure changes, discoloration, sweating of composite materials, peeling, delamination, etc. Effective testing and characterization of materials can help engineers design better products to sustain these effects and perform efficiently. The most frequently performed radiation standard testing is the MIL STD 810 that broadly specifies the testing methodologies to test the effects of both heat and degradation due to light exposure. Cyclic and steady-state tests are run to simulate months or even years of bright light, heat, UV, infrared radiation, indoor artificial light exposure using large environmental chambers, solar arrays, etc. Combined environmental testing is also performed to evaluate the effect of solar radiation under temperature variations and humidity.

ASTM E572 test method covers the analysis of stainless and alloy steels by Wavelength Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence Spectrometry (WDXRF). It provides rapid, multi-element determinations with sufficient accuracy to assure product quality.
The ASTM D2674 test is a standard test method for the analysis of sulfochromate etch solutions used in the surface preparation of aluminum. The ASTM D2674 standard specifies a method for determining the efficacy of an etchant used to prepare the surface of aluminum alloys for subsequent adhesive bonding.
An immunological method for quantization of Hevea Natural Rubber (HNRL) proteins using rabbit anti-HNRL serum. Rabbits immunized with HNRL proteins react to the majority of the proteins present, and their sera have the capability to detect most if not all the proteins in HNRL.
ASTM G65 measures the resistance of metallic materials to abrasion using the dry sand/rubber wheel apparatus. The quality, durability, and toughness of the sample are determined using this test. Metallic materials are ranked in their resistance to scratching abrasion under a controlled environment.
ASTM E2141 test methods provide accelerated aging and monitoring of the performance of time-dependent electrochromic devices (ECD) integrated in insulating glass units (IGU). This test helps to understand the relative serviceability of electrochromic glazings applied on ECD.
ASTM C724 test method is used in analyzing the quality and ease of maintenance of a ceramic decoration on architectural-type glass. This test method is useful in the acknowledgment of technical standards.
