Bix®Cure Solar Encapsulants
An optically transparent, UV- and weather-stable, fast curing, EVA solar encapsulant, Bix®Cure was developed to optimize adhesion to a broad spectrum of substrates used in the manufacture of photovoltaic (PV) modules – both rigid and thin-film constructions. Its balance of properties has allowed current users of BixCure to experience greater power retention after completion of accelerated UV and weathering exposure. Other users have benefited from better and faster de-airing in their lamination process due to BixCure’s aggressive surface finish. BixCure is supplied without the need for interleaf, which for other encapsulant products, must be discarded and added to the production waste-stream. BixCure also can be extruded onto customer specified substrates such as glass scrim or other films to simplify processes and reduce steps. BixCure is manufactured by Bixby, a leader in the development and manufacture of single and multi-layered polymer film and sheet constructions, and other custom plastic extrusions.
