Honeywell has expanded its line of PowerShield backing systems, with the introduction of the PowerShield PV270 at the 25th EU PVSEC exhibition. The PV270 is 30% lighter than the more traditional backing systems, yet it reportedly provides the same level of protection and insulation.
“As demand for alternative energy grows, so does demand for technologically-advanced materials such as Honeywell’s PowerShield line of backing systems for solar panels,” said Sanjay Sharma, global business director for Honeywell’s PowerShield business.
“This is another example of how Honeywell is innovating to help manufacturers build more cost-effective, durable solar panels.”
PowerShield PV270 is certified by TUV Rheinland to meet IEC 1000 volt standards and is also a recognized component by Underwriters Laboratories (UL) for modules produced for installations in North America.
