    Applicant: Performance Materials NA, Inc.
    Inventors: Richard T. Chou, Jane Kapur
  • Publication number: 20180233613
    Abstract: Provided herein is an encapsulant composition. The encapsulant composition, which is useful in photovoltaic modules, comprises a copolymer of ethylene, vinyl acetate and a third comonomer. Preferred third comonomers include methacrylic acid, carbon monoxide, acrylic acid, maleic anhydride mono-methyl ester (MAME), and maleic anhydride. Further provided herein is a photovoltaic module comprising the encapsulant composition. The photovoltaic module is less susceptible to potential-induced degradation than are photovoltaic modules that use conventional encapsulants that are primarily copolymers of ethylene and vinyl acetate.
    Type: Application

  • Patent number: 8637150
    Abstract: The present invention provides an acid terpolymer comprising multilayer film or sheet and safety laminates and solar cell pre-lamination assemblies comprising the same.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: October 1, 2007
    Date of Patent: January 28, 2014
    Assignee: E I du Pont de Nemours and Company
    Inventors: Richard Allen Hayes, Jane Kapur, Sam Louis Samuels
  • Publication number: 20140017455
    Abstract: Provided herein are light weight glass laminates having ionomeric interlayers and at least one glass layer. In particular, the weight of the glass laminates is reduced by reducing the thickness of the at least one glass layer to about 2.0 mm or less, or to about 1.5 mm or less. The light weight laminates retain favorable performance properties such as have good Pummel adhesion levels, good moisture resistance, and low stress. Further provided are lightweight glass laminates equipped with integral mounting devices.

  • Publication number: 20120097219
    Abstract: Provided herein are light weight solar cell modules having an ionomeric encapsulant sheet and at least one glass sheet. In particular, the weight of the solar cell modules is reduced by reducing the thickness of the at least one glass sheet to about 2.0 mm or less, or to about 1.5 mm or less. The light weight modules retain favorable performance properties such as good pummel adhesion levels, good moisture resistance, and low stress. Further provided are lightweight solar cell modules equipped with integral mounting devices.
