Highlights from the 2009 Solar Power Show in Anaheim!
As the leading manufacturer of PV backsheets, our presence at the show was well received. There was a tremendous amount of attention on our line of Protekt® backsheets; the audience was particularly interested in our Protekt TFB HD (Thin Film Barrier) product line. The TFB version of Protekt is designed specifically for thin film solar panels. The aluminum layer forms a weather-able barrier that entirely eliminates moisture penetration. This backsheet is an optimal moisture barrier that provides durable exterior performance.
With a steady flow of traffic, many discussions were based on our patented Bright White Technology. Madico recently received a patent for the white EVA layer of our backsheet construction. The bright white pigmented EVA layer has been proven to reflect a portion of the light that falls into the spaces between cells back onto the cell for conversion; which results in a Power Boost of up to 5%.
As a patent holder for this technology, Madico is the only backsheet manufacturer with Bright White Power Boosting Technology.
The three day conference was a great place to learn about the latest information concerning markets, technology, finance, and technology issues in the solar industry.
