Solar & Alternative Energy

Solar PV encapsulant sheet


In the drive for more cost-effective solar energy, technology leaders Oerlikon Solar and DuPont have collaborated on a new thin white reflective solar PV encapsulant sheet, called DuPont™ PV5223. This latest addition to the DuPont™ PV5200 Series of PVB sheets enables easier manufacturing of next-generation thin film PV modules that not only capture sunlight coming in, but also reflect more sunlight back through the module's active layer, thus capturing an extra zap from every available ray of light.

With experience manufacturing DuPont™ Butacite® PVB for the safety glass industry, thin-film photovoltaic modules or any modules made with one or more layers of glass can rely on the safety and adhesion performance of DuPont™ PV5200 Series PVB encapsulant sheets, not to mention building code compliance, sheet consistency and global supply efficiency.
