With MAST, sequential tests are repeated, mimicking field degradation not detected by single stress tests and current industry standards. It is proven to be the best predictor of long-term reliability, due to the thoroughness and prolonged aging stresses materials are subjected to in real world environments, including:
- 1000 Hours in a Humidity Chamber (amount to 25+ years of stress)
- 600 Thermal Stress Cycles (mimics thermal stresses seen in field)
- 4000 Hours in a UVA Chamber (equaling 24 years of UV stress)
Tedlar® Backsheets Subjected to MAST to Ensure Long Term Performance
Materials Matter™ – DuPont™ Tedlar® PVF film-based backsheets have passed DuPont Module Accelerated Sequential Tests, offering the optimal balance of properties for weatherability, adhesion, and mechanical strength.
