Discover how to achieve long-lasting performance from photovoltaic panels


Maximizing energy conversion reliability

From the output of the solar panel, a solar energy production system requires high-performing and reliable components to optimize and reliably convert energy for use or storage. Advanced silicones improve warranties for the industry, thanks to their excellent resistance to aging in a wide range of challenging environments to which outdoor devices may be exposed during their lifetime.

Our advanced adhesives, encapsulation and thermal management products protect outdoor electronics from environmental impacts, eliminate heat to improve efficiency, and provide long-lasting life to solar energy production systems.

Solar inverters used on photovoltaic module chains convert captured energy into a useful form for sending back to the grid, storing in a battery, or using by the consumer.
