FLEXcon, today announced the expansion of its solar module backsheet offering with the addition of Black/White and Black/Black products. FLEXcons existing white backsheet offering, which includes double fluoropolymer (TPT and KPK), single fluoropolymer (TPE and KPE) and non-fluoropolymer (PPE), is ideal for solar farms, commercial and residential installations. The new, more aesthetically pleasing black backsheet products appeal to the high-end commercial market and a much greater portion of the residential market.
The solar photovoltaic market is expected to grow to a $155 billion industry by 2018, according to a recent research report from Lux Research, resulting in an increased demand for backsheets, as PV installations are more commonly integrated into the design of commercial and residential projects. FLEXcons expanded backsheet offering enhances the options for solar module manufacturers to produce solutions that tailor to the needs of a much broader market base.
