Solar power fires up DuPont photovoltaic investment


DuPont is making further investments in its Tedlar polyvinyl fluoride production to meet the expect growth in demand from the photovoltaic industry

The firm is spending $120m to more than double its capacity.
Tedlar PVF films are used for photovoltaic back sheets and according to DuPont are widely recognised as the industry standard due to its excellent strength, weather resistance, ultraviolet resistance and moisture barrier properties.
“This investment supports the significant increase in the global market demand for clean, renewable energy,” said Dave Miller, group vice-president of DuPont electronic and communication technologies. “Our capacity expansions are critical steps in growing the Tedlar business and maintaining our market leadership in back sheets for solar panels that deliver the long-term, reliable power supply that our customers have come to expect from their investment in renewable power generation.”
DuPont expects overall sales of its family of products into the photovoltaic industry will exceed $1bn by 2012.
