Solar Gard, which develops and produces backsheet materials and flexible films, has announced the addition of PV FC10f to its suite of superior-quality solutions for use in photovoltaic modules.
The new photovoltaic backsheet is an expensive photovoltaic solution that offers enhanced protection and longevity for solar modules. The adhesive-free backsheet demonstrates benchmark performance for barrier properties and electrical isolation required by top quality module manufacturers. Moreover, the bright white backsheet is intended to provide enhanced reflection for superior module efficiencies.
Solar Gard PV FC10f integrates a proprietary durable protective layer to achieve these high-performance levels and superior environmental protection. The unique mar and scratch resistant layer offers remarkable long-term durability and is suitable to provide better adhesion to the junction box.
