FLEXcon and Spire noted that they have developed a new PV module design and bill of materials (BOM), which features FLEXcon’s multiGUARD backsheet. The BOM was recently granted the Master UL Listing by Underwriters Laboratories with both companies noting that UL tested and evaluated Spire’s solar module design and deemed that it had met UL 1703 standards for safety and performance.
“Backsheets are a key component to building a safe and effective solar module design,” said Michelle Ostiguy, director of Photovoltaic & Barrier at FLEXcon. “Spire’s customers can be confident that they are deploying a module using a BOM that is UL certified, low cost and offers the most readily available components of the highest quality. FLEXcon is proud to have worked with two industry leaders, Spire and Arkema to deliver this exciting offering to the marketplace.”
