Photovoltaic power Generation Systems are steadily gaining worldwide momentum as a source of renewable energy. The manufacture of Shinebeam® , a special polyester film developed by Toyobo for solar cell back-sheets, does not involve the use of heavy metal catalysts. This helps reduce the load on the global environment.
This film boasts weather resistance that makes it eminently suitable for use as the outer layer of the back-sheet of PV modules. Again, to help reduce the impact of manufacture on the environmental, polymerization is done without the use of a heavy metal catalyst (antimony).
