BixCure™ Solar Encapsulants

An optically transparent, UV- and weather-stable, fast curing, EVA solar encapsulant, BixCure™ 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.
