Products & Services

SolarBuyer provides a comprehensive range of products and services to manage product risk and quality from the early stages of project development through installation and operation of the product in the field.

Pre-Shipment Testing

This service complements Pre-Shipment Inspection by conducting destructive testing designed to detect specific latent defects. This service includes experienced SolarBuyer Quality Engineers deployed in the factory to select and over-see the testing of finished product.

It is often used to release individual batches of product for shipment alongside the results of Pre-Shipment Inspection. SolarBuyer utilizes either the manufacturers own’ testing equipment or has the testing conducted at an independent laboratory. Testing covers PV modules only and typically includes:
 

PV Modules
Laminate gel content verification (high accuracy methods)
Laminate peel strength verification (EVA-glass/EVA-backsheet)
Forced-current infra-red for hot-spot detection
Polarization induced degradation
