DuPont Photovoltaic Solutions (DuPont) have added a new brand to its flagship DuPont Tedlar and Solamet product lines, DuPont Fortasun solar silicones. The new silicone-based product line features sealants, adhesives, potting agents, encapsulants, and electrically conductive adhesives that all deliver the performance and reliability customers expect from DuPont. These products have been used in photovoltaic (PV) applications for over 30 years, and now they are under a new brand name – Fortasun. The durability offered by Fortasun includes delamination and corrosion protection. This helps preserve a level of performance that matches the expectations associated with investments in solar technology. Fortasun has lasting UV stability, high thermal conductivity formulations, strong adhesive bonds that help reduce failures due to moisture and it’s electrically insulating. DuPont Fortasun adhesives and sealants endure in the face of extreme climates, ensuring that energy needs are met in all parts of the world. It also helps reduce the risk of performance deterioration due to environmental elements.
