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.

Shinebeam® Features

  • SHINEBEAM® is a PET film developed for PV and is used as a protective film for the back-sheet of PV modules.
  • SHINEBEAM® Q1 series are high-transparency films with improved resistance to hydrolysis.
  • SHINEBEAM® Q2 series are white, porous films with improved reflectivity and electrical insulation.
  • SHINEBEAM® Q3 series are opalescent films with outstanding ultraviolet resistance.
  • SHINEBEAM® is a polyester film manufactured without the use of heavy metal catalysts which helps to reduce the impact on the environmental.

Shinebeam® Applications

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).
