Defrosting / Temperature gradient / limit temperature
SERCOVAM laboratories propose you to check the defrosting effectiveness of your backlites, rear quarter panels and windshields. These tests are done in a 14 m3 climatic chamber. By cooling down the parts to low temperatures, our specialists will measure the efficiency of hot wires along time, by means of videos and pictures. The power consumed so as the interior or exterior surface temperatures could also be measured. A temperature cartography on supplied parts or a resistance test of hot wires in extreme conditions can be additionally performed on demand. These tests are performed, among others, according to RENAULT 36-07-007 §5.1.3, 5.1.4 and 5.1.5, RENAULT 36-07-221 and PSA B258510.
