DuPont Photovoltaic Solutions (DPVS) announced commercial availability of new DuPont™ PV5200 Series photovoltaic (PV) encapsulant sheets, based on polyvinyl butyral (PVB) polymer technology.

DuPont™ PV5200 Series encapsulants are used in fast-growing thin-film photovoltaic panels, shown here in DuPont labs for lamination testing.

The new PVB sheets offer physical and processing performance levels proven in laminated glass manufacturing, with additional features designed to meet the needs of thin-film solar power generation. The DuPont™ PV5200 Series encapsulants are the first in a series of products emerging from recent DuPont development efforts to optimize encapsulants for faster, more efficient module production and longer service life.

New DuPont™ PV5200 Series encapsulant sheets assure excellent glass adhesion and proven safety glass performance, with high visible light transmission. Besides the PV5200 Series, DuPont anticipates the launch of several other PV sheet technologies in 2009.

"Unlike single-product suppliers, DuPont has an industry-leading range of clear, tough, adhesive materials that can be used in solar module manufacturing, including technologies adapted from related industries such as food packaging, roofing and building panel lamination," said Steve Cluff, business director, DuPont Photovoltaic Encapsulants. DuPont™ PV5200 Series Encapsulants are part of a broad and growing portfolio of products represented by DuPont Photovoltaic Solutions.
