Atlas Material Testing Technology, a provider of accelerated weathering instruments and weathering testing services, has entered into an alliance with SGS, an inspection, verification, testing and certification company.

The partnership is expected to allow for the expansion of the Atlas 25+ PV module durability test program, which helps PV manufacturers determine the long-term durability of their modules.

By combining state-of-the-art accelerated instrument and outdoor exposure testing, the Atlas 25+ program complements short-term International Electrotechnical Commission qualification tests with long-term durability and reliability assessment to support warranty and performance claims, according to the companies.

As a result of the Atlas-SGS collaboration, the standard Atlas 25+ exposure and testing protocol will be enhanced beginning next month with the availability of two new versions of the program: a streamlined six-month basic program for those needing faster results, and an expanded 12-month premium offering that includes additional climate factors and performance measurements.
