With Eternal Sun’s accurate solar simulation systems we ensure chemical companies to develop products with improved weather resistance. Our simulators provide a reliable and user friendly setup, which allows the R&D departments to effectively analyze and improve materials. To test in real-life degradation conditions, we supply a solar simulator integrated into a climate chamber. This allows customers to execute accelerated life or aging tests under normal and extreme conditions, including full sunlight or UV degradation.
A totally different application of artificial sunlight in the chemical industry is in photo-chemistry. Researchers develop materials such as membranes that convert liquids and gases with the aid of sunlight. With artificial photosynthesis it is possible to convert water and carbon dioxide to oxygen and methanol, which can be used as a bio fuel. With the Eternal Sun large area solar simulators researchers in photo-chemistry can test photo-active systems on large areas, accelerating their development.
