Krayden, Inc. Introduces Dow Corning Solar Solutions' PV Cell and Module Coating

The solvent-based moisture cure is ideal for use as a photovoltaic (PV) cell and module coating because of its resistance to humidity and other harsh environments.

DENVER — June 2010 — Krayden, Inc., a leading silicone supplier that specializes in technical knowledge and support for high tech-based applications, introduces the 1-2577 Low VOC Coating manufactured by Dow Corning Solar Solutions.


Dow Corning 1-2577 is a silicone solvent-based moisture cure that can be accelerated with mild heat to provide faster curing times. Additionally, it is ideal for use as a photovoltaic (PV) cell and module coating because of its resistance to humidity and other harsh environments. This solar panel coating also offers excellent abrasion resistance and has good dielectric properties. The clear Dow Corning 1-2577 cures with a hard slick surface, and is mil spec and UL approved. The one-part RTV also contains a UV indicator and adheres to metal, aluminum, ceramic and plastic. For flexibility and ease of use, the product is available in bottles, pails and drums.

LG Solar Unveils NeON R with Enhanced Aesthetics and Energy Savings

The NeON R module features "Back Contact" cell technology delivering an entirely black panel that is aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient. The cell's seamless, surface blends perfectly into nearly all rooftop designs while the module's electrodes are positioned on the rear of the cell. Using LG's N-type cell structure, the panels produce 365W of energy, up to 7.3kWp, compared to 5.8kWp of the p-type cell. The module's new design minimizes LID, thereby delivering a longer lifespan and increased energy output.
