Chementator: A barrier for PVs    

By Gerald Ondrey |

Honeywell Specialty Materials (Morristown, N.J.; edlinks.chemengonline.com/7373-546) has launched PowerShield PV325, a material that protects photovoltaic (PV) modules — including the critical components that convert sunlight into electricity — in all types of environments. The material is ultraviolet, moisture and weather resistant, and is designed to withstand the electrical load produced by the modules, which can operate at up to 1 kV. The barrier film is composed of five layers, including two outer layers based on ethylene chlorotrifluoroethylene (ECTFE) fluoropolymer film, a core polyethyllene terephthalate (PET) layer, and two inner bonding layers of a proprietary adhesive. Honeywell says the new barrier will provide PV-module manufacturers with an alternative to polyvinyl fluoride backing materials. Click here for a full pdf version of the Chementator Section
