BPO8828F – Upgrade your PV module with an encapsulant film having long shelf life and increased module production output

BPO8828F is a thermoplastic encapsulant film that does not require crosslinking during production. You can use shorter lamination time and milder temperature and pressure conditions since there are no reactions required. The resulting module shows low degradation and increased power output.

In Borealis, our experts tailor the polymers until they deliver the required functionality, so also with Quentys™ BPO8828F. The excellent adhesion to glass is incorporated into the polymer backbone during the polymerisation.

Quentys™ BPO8828F film does not require crosslinking during lamination like mainstream EVA and POE encapsulants. This shortens the lamination cycle time by up to 50% and increases production output without investment. There is no need for reactive additives, which results in excellent consistency across the module without defects.

The result is a chemically stable film that is ready to perform for a lifetime in the solar module.

PV module makers around the world have tested our Quentys™ BPO8828F encapsulant in their modules and received IEC and UL certifications to their modules.

Since crosslinking is not required, the lamination can be performed faster and under milder conditions, especially suitable for next generation cell technologies. This also allows higher productivity and savings in energy and maintenance costs. © Borealis
Degradation of BPO is less than 10 % after 4 cycles of sequential stress testing. Each stress cycle include damp heat, thermal cycling and damp heat with UV radiation. © Borealis
