WACKER: Thermoplastic Encapsulant (7/22/09)
Tectosil sheets help to lower manufacturing costs and ensure that modules are produced in consistently high quality. Solar cells encapsulated in Tectosil are afforded optimum protection against mechanical and chemical stresses. The material bonds the components of a PV module into a stable laminate. Since it is highly elastic and extremely flexible across a very large temperature range, it can compensate the different thermal expansions of the laminate materials.
