JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd. ("JinkoSolar" or the "Company") (NYSE: JKS), one of the world's leading global solar power product manufacturers, announced its complete line of industry leading solar modules has passed the salt mist corrosion test in accordance with International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC)61701 standards. This is the second successful test performed by international research firm TUV Rheinland, indicating strong module durability for harsh environmental conditions.
Resistance to salt mist corrosion is key to an adequate solar power yield in coastal regions where salt-laden humidity and rain persist. Salty conditions adversely affect key module components: frames, junction boxes and glass surfaces- reducing performance and shortening module lifetime. To replicate real-world, harsh conditions, JinkoSolar's modules underwent 56 days of eight test cycles. Each was sprayed with salt water for two hours then stored at 40 degrees Celsius and 93% humidity for 20 hours.
"Our modules consistently pass international testing standards, a strong indication of the high quality performance for which we are well known," said Kangping Chen, CEO of JinkoSolar. "The satisfactory salt corrosion test results confirm that JinkoSolar's modules can be installed in any coastal regions and run without interference. We are proud to continue offering reliable products for our global customer base."
This March, JinkoSolar's modules successfully passed TUV Rheinland ammonia corrosion tests, a key indicator of resistance to degradation in agricultural areas such as livestock farms. The company's solar modules consistently achieved the highest unit power yield in PHOTON Laboratory's outdoor field tests.
