Dow Corning to Push Solar Solutions at Chinese Trade Show

Dow Corning, a global leader in silicones, silicon-based technology and innovation, will present its solar solutions at Booth T667, Hall E6 at the SNEC 3rd International Photovoltaic Conference and Expo, May 6-8, at the Shanghai New International Expo Center.

"As the Chinese solar market evolves, Dow Corning continues to play a large role as both a material producer and solutions provider," said H. S. Kim, Global Sales Manager, Dow Corning Solar Business. "We believe Dow Corning's silicone technology will help advance solar power to become a viable energy option, able to compete with traditional energy sources."

This is the first year Dow Corning will participate in PV Expo in China as a result of its increasing attention and recognition of the Chinese solar market.

"We are eager to build stronger relationships with researchers, producers and governments in China as we help develop affordable and efficient solar energy," said Kim.

At its booth, Dow Corning will feature:

  • PV frame sealant and junction box adhesives, including Dow Corning PV-8101 Sealant, a one-part, easy-to-apply product made in China exclusively for the China solar market that provides reliable adhesion to typical PV substrates and reliable weathering performance.
  • A new manufacturing process featuring developmental silicone materials - Dow Corning PV-6100 Encapsulant series - that significantly increases the production rate of solar panels, effectively lowering the cost per watt of solar power.
  • Junction box potting agents that provide enhanced adhesion, improved compatibility, and higher temperature resistance.
  • Case histories from Evergreen Solar, which selected Dow Corning PV-7010 Potting Agent to protect against environmental conditions; and aleo solar AG, which selected Dow Corning Solar PV-804 Neutral Sealant because of its high performance, consistent quality, better economics and reliable supply worldwide.

Dow Corning Solar Solutions provides materials and services for the entire photovoltaic supply chain, from silicon feedstock for ingots and wafers production to solar module assembly materials. It is leveraging its unique position and global leadership in the silicon value chain to deliver solutions that will make a difference in the photovoltaic industry and help photovoltaic producers fulfill the mid- and long-term promises of solar energy.

Last month, Dow Corning announced that it had selected JinCheon, Korea as the site of its second Solar Solutions Application Center. The facility will enable engineers and scientists to work with customers to develop, evaluate, and pilot materials solutions used to manufacture solar panels. Dow Corning's first Solar Solutions Application Center opened last year in Freeland, Michigan (U.S.).

Last December, the company announced several billion dollars of investment to provide critical materials to the solar technology industry. The investment includes up to $3 billion through its majority owned joint venture - Hemlock Semiconductor - to increase manufacturing capacity for polysilicon, as well as construction of Dow Corning's first facility to produce monosilanes, which are the key raw material used in the production of thin-film solar cells.
