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
There is currently much discussion around the term "platform," which may be preceded by the adjectives "mobile," "wearable," "medical," "healthcare," etc. However, regardless of the platform being discussed, they usually have one key aspect in common: They tend to be wireless. So, why is this one aspect so fairly universal? The answer is convenience.
Everyone has a MEMS story. For most of us it’s probably the airbag that saved our lives or the life of a loved one. Perhaps it’s the tire pressure sensor that alerted us about deflation before we were stranded alone on a dark muddy road.
Bioimimicry is not merely a helpful design tool -- it also encourages designers to think not only about how to solve design problems by imitating nature, but how to make the products, materials, and systems they design more ecologically sound and nature-friendly.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
