DuPont to Launch Tedlar® Frontsheet Solution at 2023 SNEC PV Power Expo

SHANGHAI, May 24, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- DuPont (NYSE: DD) today announced it will introduce its latest Tedlar® frontsheet materials at the 2023 SNEC International Photovoltaic Power Generation and Smart Energy Exhibition. DuPont will be located at Booth W4-555 at Shanghai New International Expo Center.

"We are very proud to launch Tedlar® frontsheet to potential partners and end users in the photovoltaic industry at SNEC," said Ryan Peng, Global Business Director of DuPont Tedlar®. "The main challenge for lightweight PV modules is replacing glass frontsheets while maintaining mechanical stability and weatherability. Tedlar® frontsheet offers a unique combination of durability, UV resistance, high level of light transmittance, lasting UV protection, mechanical toughness, abrasion resistance, chemical resistance, good adhesion to encapsulant. We believe that this innovative solution can provide frontsheet of solar modules." 

The weight of photovoltaic (PV) modules poses a significant challenge in some applications. Numerous commercial buildings and auxiliary structures are designed with little to no spare structural capacity. Vehicle efficiency is directly tied to weight. Lightweight modules may address this challenge by reducing weight, enabling PV elements to be installed or retrofitted at lower cost for parking roofs, building Integrated PV (BIPV), and vehicle integrated PV (VIPV). On the booth, we will be showcasing BIPV system through integration of Tedlar® frontsheet and metal laminated roofing system.

During the exhibition, DuPont will also introduce battery pack thermal management solutions in energy storage applications. DuPont scientists will share insights at technical forums on May 25 to talk more about Tedlar® frontsheet film for lightweight and flexible PV modules and reliable performance of Tedlar® products during the SNEC Expo.
