Products for the solar industry
The sun is a massive and virtually inexhaustible source of power. Every year it supplies the Earth with more than 219,000 trillion kilowatt hours of energy at no cost. That is 3,000 times more than the entire global population uses today. The debate about climate change and the related search for alternative energy sources has steadily increased the significance of the solar power industry and demand for solar modules in recent years. Kuraray plays an active role in this growth segment.
PVB film for double-glass modules
Kuraray is the first producer to have developed a PVB film specifically for solar applications. The new film is marketed as Trosifol® Solar. This encapsulating film facilitates the production of dual layer solar modules with an excellent safety profile for integration into roofs and facades.
