As the leading global supplier of materials to the PV industry, DuPont Photovoltaic Solutions knows how much materials matter towards ensuring long-term system reliability. That’s why we are completing extensive testing to determine how material performance relates to and can ultimately benefit module performance.
To date, DuPont has tested a broad range of commercially available backsheet constructions, including several that contain Tedlar® and many competitive backsheets that do not. Each was evaluated on a range of critical properties, exposure tests, and a visual inspection, using the same structure and same conditions for a true side-by-side comparison.
The results speak for themselves: Under normal, as well as extreme UV and damp heat exposure, Tedlar® resists delamination, yellowing and degradation that compromise other backsheet materials.
