DuPont has commercialized a new family of photovoltaic encapsulant sheets: the DuPont PV5300 Series. The company says the products deliver long-term protection for the most sensitive part of photovoltaic modules – the solar cells. They contribute to longer life and reduced cost per watt, helping system manufacturers deliver more reliable and cost-effective solar power, DuPont adds.
The DuPont PV5300 Series sheets are five times tougher and 100 times stiffer than materials typically used as encapsulants, the company says. Their structural properties make possible new module designs, such as building-integrated photovoltaic tiles that can be installed on building roofs.
