The posters panels can be manufactured in flexible materials, such as plastics and it can be attached to curved surfaces such as columns. In addition to this, the new displays offer a wider viewing angle than LCD displays. Read more
Encapsulants are critical building component of PV modules, come as a sheet material responsible for protecting PV cells and collectors circuits from external environment, requiring these materials to have a high level of weather resistance and prolong reliability.
Due to high cost of PV solar cells, there has been a recent tendency to thin down the crystal silicon, however, thin silicon has the tendency to break or crack, leaving manufacturer with alternative of thickening the encapsulants.
Based on this, Dai Nippon Printing has successfully developed a CVF1, polyolefin encapsulants, which is suitable to be used within crystalline silicon photovoltaic (PV) cells. Read more
