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
Imagine being able to illegally download a physical product the same way you can with music and video. The advent of desktop, home, and prosumer 3D printers is having huge repercussions in the intellectual property domain.
