2011 Issue 2: Material innovation enabling alternative energy

Cost-effective photovoltaic energy solutions

True to its motto of sustainable innovation, DuPont Performance Polymers has tailored its portfolio of thermoplastics materials and design knowledge to the needs of the photovoltaic (PV) industry.

Perfluoroelastomer parts used in high temperature photovoltaic cell manufacturing processes

Photovoltaic (PV) cell manufacturing involves the use of many aggressive chemicals and operates under very severe environments, including high temperatures, placing more strain on the manufacturing equipment itself.

A roadmap for grid parity, driven by material innovation

The photovoltaic (PV) industry has experienced spectacular and unprecedented growth in the last decade, and the expectation is for this macro trend to continue on a global scale in future years.

Meeting the bio-based challenge

DuPont™ Viton® fluoroelastomer presents companies that produce, blend, transport and dispense bio-based products a high performance product line for longer seal life and reliability in hoses, gasket and o-rings.

Discover the Electrical Insulation Systems (EIS) of Your Choice at a Few Clicks

When you are designing a robust electrical coil winding application (motors, transformers, solenoids, etc.), you need to dig out from thousands of electrical insulation systems (EIS) from UL IQ database.

Cost-effective photovoltaic junction box housings

Junction boxes are installed by photovoltaic (PV) manufacturers directly on to the back of every PV panel and serve as the interface between the conductor ribbons on the panel and the DC input and output cables.
