Dow Adds Line For New Films

MIDLAND, MI | The Dow Chemical Co. is introducing ENLIGHT polyolefin encapsulant films, said to enhance efficiencies in photovoltaic (PV) module production and lead to lower conversion costs. The new encapsulant films are suitable for C-Si and thin-film modules.

Dow says the new encapsulant films are the latest solutions spurred by its focus on delivering sustainable solutions to address some of today's challenges, including the need for clean energy.

The specialty films initially will be produced at Dow's manufacturing plant in Findlay, OH, where a state-of-the-art production line was added to address the growing demand for specialty films for use in PV modules. Commercial-scale manufacturing of ENLIGHT Polyolefin Encapsulant Films will begin on that line in the fourth quarter of 2010.
