CHICAGO - Atlas Material Testing Solutions is hosting a two-day conference for the global weathering community. The Atlas Technical Conference on Accelerated Ageing and Evaluation will be held Dec. 8-9, 2009, at the Pointe Hilton Tapatio Cliffs Resort in Phoenix, AZ.
Participants will hear from and interact with speakers from the solar energy industry. Presentations will focus on the latest developments, research and innovative approaches to address environmental durability, performance and service life of materials, components and PV modules. With solar system life expectancies at 20, 30 and even 40 years, appropriate accelerated testing of long-term durability is crucial. The solar market has grown tremendously, and accurate weathering testing has never been more important to product development, quality control and certification testing.
