DuPont Develops Technology To Simplify Solar PV Backsheet Production


DuPont Photovoltaic Fluoromaterials has developed a proprietary technology to produce PV backsheets containing DuPont Tedlar polyvinyl fluoride (PVF) polymer in a single step. The company has signed a licensing agreement with Toppan Printing Co. Ltd. to commercialize the technology.

‘This collaboration combines DuPont's proprietary technology for Tedlar polymer in backsheets with Toppan's unique coating capability,’ says Kelly Kolliopoulos, global business manager for Tedlar. ‘We view the new backsheet technology as complementary to our continuing activities to increase the supply of Tedlar films in order to meet the industry's growth and demand.’

The technology license follows recent manufacturing expansions for Tedlar polymer and the newest Tedlar PV2100 series films, in addition to incremental expansions of its capacity for the Tedlar PV2000 series film.
