Dow Corning Solar
Over 70 years, Dow Corning has manufactured thousands of specialized silicone products for a variety of applications and a wide range of industries. Solar energy is becoming popular and growing more than ever. Dow Corning offers high performing sealants, coatings and encapsulants making a push for solar to become one of the leading sources of renewable energy. The quality silicone products assist in protecting devices on the solar panel as well as giving power modules the capability to perform with high efficiency and stability while reducing cost. Dow Corning is taking the initiative to deliver clean renewable energy protecting the environment.
This initiative focuses on economy renewal, environmental improvement and energy security. Economy renewal is based on creating a viable source of renewable energy. Dow Corning is one of the leaders in providing silicone material that contributes to efficient renewable energy. Dow Corning is making a push to make solar energy a main source of energy allowing environmental improvement, while creating jobs for the economy. The focus on environmental improvement and how to make solar more efficient will only create jobs and allow the dependency on fossil fuels to be minimized. Dow Corning is producing high quality products that are efficient and reliable. With the advanced steps taken towards making silicone products for solar energy, solar power is becoming a more affordable and practical source of energy.
Dow Corning produces a variety of silicone products for solar energy including monosilane, PV cell coating, encapsulants, junction box potting agents, adhesives and sealants. Producing silicone solar materials is giving solar energy the capability to be more efficient and accessible. The benefits of silicone are:
- Monosilane and silicone metal have been involved in semiconductors for a long time
- Silicone Sealants and adhesives are proven to perform in the toughest environments
- Resistance to damage
There silicone based materials are used in many applications of solar energy including protecting photovoltaic cells. Photovoltaic cells generate electrical power by converting solar radiation into direct current electricity using semiconductors. The sealants and encapsulants provided by Dow Corning protect the cells and semiconductors from weathering damages. They are produced with high transparency and multiple viscosity options to meet the demands of the solar industry. The innovation and technology that goes into producing these silicone materials have provided the solar industry with an advantage allowing it to become a competitive alternative source of energy
A new innovated technology that Dow Corning is investing research and development into is building-integrated photovoltacis. This is a set of PV modules joined together by Dow Corning Sealants in front of windows. It is an integrated building structure that uses solar panels to produce electricity. Silicone sealants and adhesives are used for all types of applications in protecting the panels, modules and solar arrays from weathering. Dow Corning is very focused on producing an efficient source of energy while being environmentally safe. With over six decades of research and development of silicone products, Dow Corning is making strides to create an environmentally safe and efficient renewable energy.
Dow Corning PV Junction Box Potting Agents
Dow Corning Potting agents are reliable and durable material designed for Photovoltaic Junction box applications. These potting agents have the capability of making the junction box more durable allowing a long lasting
product with protection withstanding the harsh elements. Dow Corning potting agents deliver:
- Insulation for electrical components
- Fire resistant
- Weather resistant
- stability and flexibility over a variety of temperatures
Thermally conductive potting agents are allowing the solar industry to use
smaller junction boxes. With a smaller amount of materials used to create
a junction box, the total cost will decrease.
Dow Corning PV Junction Box Adhesives and Sealants
Dow Corning PV-804 black is just one of their many high performing silicone sealants that Dow Corning manufactures for PV module components. It has great adhesion properties to anodized aluminum, glass, polycarboonate and fluoropolymer laminates.
Dow Corning PV Sealants and Adhesives
Dow Corning provides many PV sealants and adhesives for the Solar Industry. These high quality products are built to be durable, long lasting and resistant to weathering. Dow Corning PV silicone sealants and adhesives are cost-effective material allowing affordable solar energy making it an alternative source of renewable energy.Dow Corning PV Frame Sealant is formulated to seal solar devices and enhance protecting from weathering and moisture. It has a durable adhesion to many substrates like glass and frames. This material provides long lasting bonding to PV Modules and it will protect it from thermal shock and vibration.Dow Corning PV Rail Bonding Adhesives are durable structural adhesives for mounting solar panels. This silicone material was specialized in providing structural support and strength while being very cost-effective. Some of the benefits of Dow Corning PV sealants and adhesives include:
- Reduces installation costs and the amount of material needed
- Reduces damage done at stress points caused by hardware
- Easy onsite application
