  • Patent number: 10505067
    Abstract: Provided are an aqueous dispersion composition, a backsheet for a photovoltaic module, a method of preparing the same, and a photovoltaic module. Since the aqueous dispersion composition includes a fluorine-based polymer, a pigment and an aqueous dispersion binder, a backsheet for a photovoltaic module using the aqueous dispersion composition is prepared without a toxic organic solvent, and thus is environmentally friendly and economical. In addition, as the aqueous dispersion binder is used, a chalking phenomenon in which the pigment projected on a surface of the backsheet is easily detached may be prevented, thereby enhancing both productivity and quality.

  • Patent number: 9458419
    Abstract: This invention relates to an aqueous polymer composition and to films formed from this aqueous composition. The aqueous composition may be used in a method for removing contaminate material from a substrate. The aqueous polymer composition may comprise: water; and at least one water-soluble film forming polymer. In one embodiment, the aqueous composition may further comprise at least one chelating agent and/or at least one surfactant. The aqueous polymer composition may be applied to a contaminated substrate or to a clean substrate which is subjected to subsequent contamination. The aqueous composition may be dehydrated and/or the polymer may be crosslinked to form a film. When applied to a contaminated substrate, the film may combine with the contaminates. When applied to a clean substrate, the contaminate material may subsequently contact and adhere to the film.
