  • We are moving forward on our new R&D laboratory in Saudi Arabia, and we have recently announced plans to build photovoltaic encapsulant film capabilities in both Asia-Pacific and in Germany.

  • Together, these sites will more than triple the Company's capacity for making specialty films used in photovoltaic modules, and will significantly expand the Company's ability to supply encapsulant films worldwide.

  • These encapsulant films also allow fast processing speeds, which may help module manufacturers lower their conversion costs.

  • VistaSolar encapsulant volumes were down approximately 40% in the third quarter versus the year-ago period.

  • The Company pioneered the solar encapsulant market more than 30 years ago with the invention of the first EVA encapsulant.

  • Traditionally, reflective paints were used between the cell and the encapsulant to reflect light back to the active layer.


  • In the drive for more cost-effective solar energy, technology leaders Oerlikon Solar and DuPont have collaborated on a new thin white reflective solar PV encapsulant sheet, called DuPont (TM) PV5223


  • By making a white reflective encapsulant, DuPont helps Oerlikon Solar eliminate the need for reflective paint.


  • Designed for use with Oerlikon Solar's Micromorph (R) technology, DuPont's new PV5223 white encapsulant increases light reflectivity by more than 50% versus paint, to an almost perfect
