Borealis has introduced new polyolefin based encapsulant film grades (Quentys™ BPO) for solar photovoltaic modules. The new encapsulant is thermoplastic in nature and is free of organic peroxide. The lamination cycle time with this encapsulant can be reduced significantly compared to conventional EVA and other polyolefin based encapsulants.
Third-party comparative testing* confirms that Borealis encapsulants extend the lifetime of solar modules and increase their power output over time because they offer industry-leading resistance against:
* Tüv Rheinland, Fraunhofer & imec
Borealis have joined forces with solar backsheet specialists ISOVOLTAIC SOLINEX to develop new materials offering significant advantages over previous designs.
Benefits include reduced manufacturing complexity, improved reliability and extended lifetime.
