Solar Gard Photovoltaics, part of Bekaert Specialty Films, has introduced the PV T10f to its line of high-quality backsheets for photovoltaic (PV) modules. Solar Gard is a global leader in the development and manufacturing of flexible films, and PV T10f leverages the company’s more than 30 years of expertise in coating and laminating to improve EVA adhesion and peel strength. Solar Gard PV T10f is UL recognized and performance tested at TUV, and outperforms third-party testing criteria.
The market had been missing a backsheet with a performance similar to TPT that provides significant cost savings.
The innovative Solar Gard PV T10f backsheet represents the new standard in PV backsheet technology. With a combination of a tried and tested Tedlar weather resistant outside layer, benchmark hydrolysis resistance and a proprietary functionalized surface that dramatically enhances adhesion to EVA, Solar Gard PV T 10f is the clear choice in total cost of ownership. With Solar Gard’s proven film success and commitment to innovation, our engineers have generated new coating combinations to deliver a backsheet that is cost effective and meets high-performance objectives.
PV module encapsulation.
Designed to meet a range of panel sizes and configurations, Solar Gard PV T10f is manufactured in ISO-certified facilities in the United States. Available worldwide, additional PV production capacity will be added in Qingdao, China, in 2012.
May 2011 onwards.
