Ensuring long-lasting performance of PV modules in harsh outdoor environments can be a major challenge for solar module manufacturers.  Dow Corning® brand silicone encapsulants provide solar modules excellent durability and protection against corrosion and delamination. Count on Dow Corning solar encapsulant products to improve performance of solar modules.

Dow Corning’s PV-6100 Encapsulant series technology builds on the UV stability of the silicone molecule to enhance benefits for crystalline modules:
•Improved durability
• Increased efficiency
This technology utilizes liquid processing to deliver a lower total cost of ownership for both crystalline and amorphous silicon thin-film modules with:
•Lower capital cost
• Lower processing cost
• Improved processing efficiency
