We have pioneered silicone applications to enable concentrated photovoltaics (CPV) and concentrated solar power (CSP), both vital technologies in meeting the energy challenges ahead. They are two of a wide range of solutions we have created to meet the constantly evolving needs of a rapidly growing industry. Our silicones have increased cell efficiency, extended the life of solar panels and shortened lead times, all while lowering the cost of production for our customers. Our offerings include:
- The SilTRUST* portfolio of silicone products, providing long-lasting protection in harsh outdoor environments
- A broad product line of high-adhering silicone adhesives for the demanding reliability requirements of solar field applications
- Thermally stable, long-life pyrolitic boron nitride (PBN) crucibles, heaters and coatings for high-volume production of copper indium gallium selenide (CIGS) solar cells
- PV solar cell encapsulants that provide improved light transmission, more electricity per unit area and better long-term stability than EVA film
From future-focused custom solutions to technologies that provide answers today, discover products that are advancing the renewable energy industry.
