The Material of Choice for
PV Encapsulants

As the global photovoltaic market continues to grow, material selection can be a critical component in the ongoing success of PV module manufacturers. ENGAGE™ PV Polyolefin Elastomers (POEs) help make the choice for PV encapsulant films easier with opportunities for exceptional long-term performance, reliability, and lower overall costs.

Top and bottom PV encapsulant films made with ENGAGE™ PV POEs offer opportunities to significantly:

  • Increase power generation, electrical efficiency, reliability, and service life
  • Improve resistance to potential induced degradation (PID) with "PID Zero" performance (modules exhibit virtually no PID)
  • Reduce the levelized cost of electricity (LCOE) as well as total system costs

ENGAGE™ PV POEs for PV encapsulant films offer improved performance compared to most competing materials
