ISOVOLTAIC SOLINEX, a leader in the solar backsheet domain, joined forces with Borealis, a leading provider of polyolefin solutions for the global energy industry to launch a new backsheet product one year back. This revolutionary backsheet, called ICOSOLAR® CPO 3G, is a co-extruded polypropylene backsheet. It offers significant advantages in comparison to conventional solar PV backsheets and is available at an attractive price level.
ICOSOLAR® CPO 3G, exclusively based on modified polypropylene, exhibits unique long-term stability values measured in the damp heat test (DHT) procedures. As of today, the product has undergone more than 10,000 hours of DHT with outstandingly high retention rates observable for tensile strengths and elongation to break. The product is fluorine-free and is, hence, environment friendly. It is IEC approved and recognised by UL. The product is available in two colours, white and black, and in the form of rolls and sheets up to a maximum width of 1,300 mm as per customer specifications. The maximum roll length is between 1,200 and 2,000 m depending on the thickness of the product. It is available in four different thicknesses in order to cover IEC 61730-1 Ed.1, IEC 61730-1 Ed. 2 and UL Type I.
In order to reduce lead time and ensure better supply chain management for buyers, ISOVOLTAIC SOLINEX is announcing warehousing facilities at Arshiya near Mumbai. This warehouse would stock the new backsheets in two different widths for different wattages of modules to cater to the Indian market.
