One of the highlights was the new, design-inspiring BLACK & WHITE product line. This product range of the Kuraray subsidiary is based on two new PVB films, Brilliant Black and Diamond White, in a 0.76 mm thickness. These are supplemented by three more design films in different shades of white and different degrees of opacity. By introducing this new segment, the Troisdorf film specialist is extending its target group and appealing to architects, planners and interior designers.
The PVB encapsulation films for photovoltaic modules – TROSIFOL SOLAR – were presented as integrated in customer modules, one thin-layer and two crystalline modules.
The vibrant COLOUR product line was illustrated with different-coloured glass panes, while automotive glazing expertise was demonstrated with several windscreens. The latter segment is all set to grow in importance now that TROSIFOL has announced its decision to invest almost EUR 20 million in the coming two years in the expansion of PVB film production for automotive glazing.
