Phono Solar’s PV Modules Receive Certification for Salt Mist Corrosion Test


NANJING, China, November 4, 2011 – Phono Solar announced today that its Mono and Poly Modules have successfully received salt mist corrosion certificate from Intertek Testing Services.

The salt mist corrosion test was performed by Intertek in accordance with the standard IEC61701. In the test, the modules were immerged into 5% sodium chloride mist for 96 hours in a 35℃ test chamber. Then after being cleaned, the modules’ power decline and dielectric voltage withstand performance were tested. This test demands highly on the performance of modules’ package and quality of raw materials such as frame and back sheet etc. This new certificate demonstrates the high quality, exceptional performance and reliability of Phono Solar’s modules, which can be installed at the seaside with salt mist concentrations. Additionally, the coastally installed modules can bring even more financial benefits to customers. Recently, Phono Solar’s modules are receiving the ammonia gas resistance test from TüV Rheinland. By then, Phono Solar’s modules will be installed in almost any climate and locations.

“Passing the salt mist corrosion test not only indicates that Phono Solar’s modules has once again achieved the recognition of international certificate authorities, but also signifies that Phono Solar’s modules will match customers’ expectations in wider areas,” said Mr. Yuan Quan, Vice Director of Phono Solar’s Sales and Marketing Centre.

With parent company of China National Machinery Industry Corporation (SINOMACH) and as a part of SUMEC group Corporation, Phono Solar is a leading high-tech enterprise in the renewable energy industry specialized in design, manufacturing and delivering of key project components, and in PV plant investment. Phono Solar actively tests their modules on extreme conditions to continuously improve the products’ quality and services.
