LightSwitch Frontsheet is a melt processable
fluoropolymer providing weatherability and UV resistance, useful for flexible
and lightweight solar modules. These transparent films provide frontsheets weighing
as low as 0.1 kg/m2 offer resistance to chemicals and weathering, low
flammability, stress crack resistance, and insulating properties. In addition,
LightSwitch Frontsheet is surface-treated to ensure superb adhesion to LightSwitch Encapsulant.
LightSwitch Encapsulant provides cushioning
and structural support to solar cells and circuitry, while maximizing
transmission of sunlight for energy conversion. With weathering properties, it
protects the solar module throughout its lifecycle. LightSwitch Encapsulant is
suitable for both flexible and rigid modules, with adhesion to other PV module components.
LightSwitch Frontsheet Complete, a pre-laminate combining Frontsheet and
Encapsulant, features all the performance benefits of both with improved
production efficiencies, including reduced wrinkles and precise alignment.
The portfolio also includes the LightSwitch
Module Design Program and expert engineering design services for PV module
Major changes are happening in the world of 3D printing and additive manufacturing materials, machines, and software. If the industry -- and the design engineers and OEMs it serves -- are to grow, all three areas must become much more tightly integrated.
Americans spent more than $60B on their pets in 2015. Folks are definitely spending their money on more than dog food. We’re spending on things like dog spas and fancy toys, and as you can imagine, the wearables market is becoming well represented here.
Time was when sports equipment was made only from common, everyday, low-tech materials. But now sports equipment has a new, high-tech ingredient that is helping players take their game to the next level.
