Dow Unveils New Technologies for Solar Panel Makers: ENLIGHT Polyolefin Back Encapsulant Composite Films Offers “2-in-1” Solution

september 4 2012

The Dow Chemical Company apprised that it is introducing new polyolefin-based technologies and bringing next generation solutions to the market to help harness the power of the sun and turn it into cost-effective energy to help address the world’s growing needs.

ENLIGHTTM Polyolefin Back Encapsulant Composite Films use patent-pending technology to create a single structure that provides “2-in-1” functionality, serving as both the back encapsulant and backsheet for solar panels.

Next generation ENLIGHT Polyolefin Encapsulant Films offer excellent electrical insulation properties, increased resistance to the effects of Potential Induced Degradation (PID) and extended module efficiency levels.

Developed for rigid crystalline silicon (c-Si) photovoltaic modules, these sophisticated composite films serve as both the back encapsulant and backsheet. The use of these “2-in-1” structures can provide significant processing and performance advantages.

“By combining two separate components, ENLIGHT Polyolefin Back Encapsulant Composite Films offer excellent module protection,” said Friedrich von Rechteren, Global Business Development Manager, Photovoltaic Business. “Our solution eliminates delamination, improves electrical insulation and offers higher levels of moisture resistance. This means that Dow can help customers improve performance, increase production efficiency and reduce working capital. ENLIGHT Back Encapsulant Composite Films can help reduce total lifetime system costs for PV modules.”
