Christopher Associates Now Provides Qualification Samples for Its Advanced Backsheet Material

The company now ships qualification samples of the Jolywood FFC-JW30 advanced photovoltaic backsheet material. Using patented technology, Jolywood has achieved a breakthrough in environmental resistance and electrical performance.

Christopher Associates Inc. announces that it now ships qualification samples of the Jolywood FFC-JW30 advanced photovoltaic backsheet material. Using patented technology, Jolywood has achieved a breakthrough in environmental resistance and electrical performance.


The highly stable molecular structure of FFC- JW30 film improves weatherproofing, moisture resistance, and electrical and thermal insulation. FFC-JW30 film also improves ultraviolet radiation resistance, a critical metric in photovoltaic applications. The FFC-30JW is UL, TV and SGS certified.

Available in several colors, the FFC-JW30 backsheet material offers higher peel strengths and eliminates the use of adhesives, reducing its environmental impact and enhancing its long-term reliability. The Jolywood films also reduce material costs and improve manufacturing yields.

Christopher Associates Inc. will exhibit the Jolywood materials on Level 3 in Stand 9247 at Intersolar North America, which is scheduled to take place July 13-15, 2010 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.

Kipp & Zonen - DustIQ the novel soiling monitoring solution for solar panels

Soiling of the panel glass is one of the major problems in the rapidly expanding solar energy market, with the attendant loss of efficiency and reduction in performance ratios. Now, there's a new, simple and very cost-effective alternative. Based on Kipp & Zonen's unique Optical Soiling Measurement (OSM) technology, DustIQ can be easily added to new or existing solar arrays and integrated into plant management systems. The unit is mounted to the frame of a PV panel and does not need sunlight to operate. It continuously measures the transmission loss through glass caused by soiling, so that the reduction in light reaching the solar cells can be calculated.
