Solar Gard® Unveils New Solution for Increased Protection and Durability of PV Modules

Adhesive-Free PV FC10f Backsheet Provides Enhanced Performance Required by High-Quality Manufacturers

SAN DIEGO--Solar Gard®, a global leader in the development and manufacturing of flexible films and backsheet materials, today introduced PV FC10f to its line of high-quality solutions for photovoltaic (PV) modules. The new photovoltaic backsheet is a cost-effective PV solution that provides increased protection and durability for top quality module manufacturers.


Solar Gard PV FC10f is an adhesive-free backsheet that delivers benchmark performance for the electrical isolation and barrier properties demanded by module manufacturers. Additionally, the bright white backsheet is designed to give improved reflection for higher module efficiencies.

To reach these high-performance levels, PV FC10f incorporates a proprietary Durable Protective Layer for environmental protection. The exclusive scratch and mar resistant layer provides excellent long-term durability and is ideally matched for superb adhesion to the junction box. PV FC10f also has a functional coating for enhanced adhesion to ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA).

"As the photovoltaic market continues to mature worldwide, the need for top quality, long term, durable yet cost-effective solutions such as PV FC10f is increasing," said Christophe Fremont, president of Solar Gard. "We pride ourselves on consistently providing our customers with the innovative, high-performance solutions they need to succeed in the market and look forward to continuing to deliver products that meet those demands."

Solar Gard PV FC10f is UL recognized and performance tested at TUV, and outperforms third party testing criteria. The PV FC10f is available in flexible roll form to fit a wide range of panel sizes and configurations, and is manufactured in the United States and China.
