Custom Thermoplastic Extrusion Solutions

BIXCURE™ ‐ A THERMOPLASTIC EXTRUSION PRODUCT

BixCure™ is an optically transparent, UV- and weather- stable, fast-curing, EVA solar encapsulant developed to optimize adhesion to a broad spectrum of substrates used in the manufacture of photovoltaic (PV) modules. BixCure™’s balance of properties enables users to experience greater power retention after accelerated UV and weathering exposure. Users also benefit from better and faster de-airing in their lamination process; this characteristic helps to eliminate waste during production.

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 modules – both rigid and thin-film constructions. Its balance of properties enables BixCure™ users to experience greater power retention after 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. In addition, BixCure™ requires no interleaf, which eliminates production waste. BixCure™ also can be extruded onto customer specified substrates such as glass scrim or other films. When used this way, BixCure™ reduces steps and simplifies the process.
