Development of Silver Nano-Wire Based Transparent Conductive Film with Industry’s Best Transparency and Conductivity by Toray Advanced Film
Toray Advanced Film has recently announced the development of new transparent conductive material based on silver nanowire ink, resulting in manufacturing of transparent conductive film with the world’s best transparency and conductivity, as well as light transmittance of 90% or more, plus surface resistivity, which is measurement of conductivity, between 150 and 250 ohm per square using wet coating method. In addition to these features, the new material features superior flexibility, natural coloration, durability and workability. 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
