Asia-based EVA encapsulant material producer HIUV New Materials said it successfully developed an encapsulant for N-type cell based PV modules that limits PID (Potential Induced Degradation).

The company noted that its new EVA encapsulant, P502MR had been tested with by a leading PV module manufacturer with good results and that it had completed tool installation to produce the material in a JV with Jinglong in China with a nameplate capacity equivalent to 1.5G. Production is expected to ramp in the third quarter of 2016.

HIUV had previously said it was ramping up capacity to 117 million m2 per year, in order serve the equivalent of 9GW of PV module production.
