Arkema to market Evatane for photovoltaic solar panels

Apr '08
Arkema, the European leader in HC EVA (High Content Ethylene – Vinyl Acetate copolymers), now markets Evatane 33-45PV, an HC EVA specifically developed for photovoltaic solar panels.

The direct result of Arkema's R&D innovation, this new grade is designed for the encapsulation of the materials (crystalline silicon or thin films) that make up the photovoltaic cells.

Evatane 33-45PV is characterized by outstanding optical performances, in particular good light transmission which makes for a superior yield from the solar panel.

Thanks to its specially developed formulation, it offers excellent crosslinking ability and processability.

Deeply committed to the design of innovative materials for the development of new sources of energy, Arkema plans to launch another new Evatane grade specially designed for photovoltaic applications by the end of 2008.

Evatane copolymer resins are ethylene copolymers with a high vinyl acetate content (from 18 to 42 %). With properties closer to those of elastomers than polyethylene, these resins are easy to process and compatible with a large number of polymers.

Evatane resins are used in many industrial applications, including hotmelt adhesives, photovoltaic cells, cable sheathing, multilayer packaging film, and road bitumen.
