Frontsheet films made from ECTFE are used in place of glass to reduce the weight of photovoltaic (PV) modules or to allow the construction of flexible PV modules. The Frontsheet serves as a protective barrier for the interior workings. Critical film requirements include low water vapor permeation and excellent UV resistance, a high degree of visible light transmission, service life from 10 to 25 years, and in some cases, increased mechanical impact strength.
Our Hyperion film product line, produced by Griff Photovoltaic Films is a strong, hard, tough, abrasion resistant film that retains its useful properties over a broad range of temperatures.
- This film exhibits outstanding low temperature properties, especially those related to impact.
- The film delivers good tensile, flexural and wear resistance properties.
- Demonstrated excellent weathering properties
- Extremely resistant to UV radiation and common industrial and environmental pollutants.
