Kuraray and AIST develop PVB film for photovoltaic module encapsulation
12:02 AM MDT | October 3, 2013 | Deepti Ramesh
Kuraray, through joint research with the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST; Tokyo), has developed high-durability encapsulant polyvinyl butyral (PVB) films that help to make photovoltaic (PV) modules lighter and less expensive, and has begun sampling them in test markets. Encapsulants for PV modules are materials used to encase or cover electrodes, wires and other components as well as the PV cells that generate electricity. They play the important role of protecting the interior from water and shocks while helping to keep the...
