Zero risk of delamination

Whereas the PV industry strives for solar modules that have the different layers encapsulated together as one inseparable block, it has had to accept relatively low adhesion values between the layers of laminated backsheet. Agfa’s UNIQOAT fundamentally eliminates adhesion issues and the risk of delamination by offering the backsheet that includes all relevant functionality in one single layer: the mono-backsheet. This is achieved by using Agfa’s proprietary coating technology to modify the PET surface during the PET extrusion process itself.

All UNIQOAT backsheet types are the result of this unique one-step manufacturing process. Compared to backsheet production via consecutive steps UNIQOAT holds great cost reduction potential and opportunities for future developments.

(*) Based on solar weighted reflection in the range 380 nm – 1100 nm per ISO 9050:2003 (method used e.g. by TÜV Süd China)
