Solar's bright future

Updated: Jun 22

Installation of solar modules is growing at a double-digit rate globally, which is welcome news for materials suppliers.

Plastics such as EVA (ethylene-vinyl-acetate) and POE (polyolefin elastomer) are fighting it out in the solar module encapsulation stakes, but it turns out that they are both winners, working best together in multilayer constructions to protect the silicon from moisture ingress in the latest generation of bifacial modules.
