Paper Abstract

Transparent PVB lamination foils are widely used in thin-film solar modules. The application of a pigmented load composed by TiO2 particles in the foil formulation does not only influence the reflectance properties of this material, it has also a remarkable impact on other material parameters like resistivity and adhesion. The main objective of this study is to illustrate the properties of white lamination films based on polyvinyl butyral materials. A special insight will be on adhesion, foil resistivity and activation energies. Some performance results on modules will be also presented.
