Dow Corning Solar and Krayden, Inc. Sign Distribution Agreement to Support Industry Growth

Krayden, Inc. signed a distribution agreement with Dow Corning Solar Solutions to address growing industry needs in solar manufacturing.

DENVER — Krayden, Inc., a leading silicone supplier that specializes in technical knowledge and support for high tech-based applications, signed a distribution agreement with Dow Corning Solar Solutions, a global leader in silicones and silicone-based technology, to address growing industry needs in solar manufacturing.


In an unprecedented agreement with Dow Corning Solar Solutions, Krayden, Inc. is now an authorized distributor of its PV-based silicone materials. Krayden, Inc. offers manufacture trained representatives for both established and new silicone materials being developed by Dow Corning to increase efficiency in the solar panel and photovoltaic manufacturing industries. Combining the technically trained support, re-packaging and dispensing solutions offered through Krayden, Inc., the pioneering silicone materials: adhesives, sealants and encapsulants, being produced by Dow Corning Solar Solutions now provides the complete support required to accommodate the evolving solar market.

"Working with OEMs side by side, testing materials, seeing what works, what needs adjustment is what we do best. Prior to the boom in alternative energy manufacturing, we have been well-established supporting electronics and related industries. Sliding that knowledge and support to photovoltaics, solar panels, wind turbine and related manufacturing challenges was a natural addition. With the same challenges to consider ― cost, efficiency, and environment ― we have the experience and knowledge base to make a difference and assist in quickly moving to resolutions," said Wayne Wagner, President of Krayden Inc.

Many new materials are being produced by Dow Corning aimed at significantly increasing production rate and lowering the watt of solar power. Some silicone products in demand include encapsulants, PV Cell and Module Coatings, PV Junction Box Potting Agents, PV Rail Bond Adhesives, PV Frame Sealants and PV Junction Box Adhesives. These products, along with technical support in applications, will be more accessible to a broader spectrum in the solar panel industry with the distribution services now offered by Krayden, Inc.

Flex-Core - Flexible Split-Core Current Transformer

The FCL model split-core current transformers have multiple benefits, including a flexible twisting motion for ease of application. Installing a split-core CT means there is no need to disconnect your primary conductor(s) which reduces downtime. Many customizations are available including extended secondary lead wire lengths, various outputs including 5A, 1A, 1VAC, and 0.333VAC, and custom rubber inserts to help center the CT and maintain accuracy. The FCL models can be used in applications up to 720VAC and have an operating frequency from 50Hz to 400Hz.
