As the global photovoltaic (PV) market continues to grow, the demand for durable, reliable, high-performance PV modules is expanding as a result. The PV Dow products we supply offer a wide range from a chemical and technology perspective. New PV Dow products are tested to meet specific solar industry requirements to create more reliable solar modules.
Based on more than 50 years of experience, Dow works with leading solar companies to improve the durability, longevity and performance of PV systems.
They understand that materials are the key players driving innovation, which is why Dow is helping solve challenges in module manufacturing by leveraging silicone, polyolefin, and polyurethane products. New technologies enable PV module manufacturers to explore new and more efficient designs.

The designs for tomorrow’s renewable energy needs

Thanks to Dow, we can offer encapsulants and potting for a wide variety of applications:

  • electronic components;
  • for bonding tracks;for sealing electronic components;
  • bonding rails;
  • frame sealing;
  • adhesive junction boxes;
  • protective and repair coatings;
  • materials for optics.

Our goal is to work together with Dow to achieve the global energy transition.

Maximizing conversion reliability

To achieve optimal efficiency and efficient conversion of stored or still usable energy, a solar power system requires reliable, high-performance components. Dow’s advanced PV silicone materials are critical to industries because they offer excellent resistance to aging in a wide range of harsh environments to which external devices may be exposed during their lifetime.

Dow provides advanced adhesives, protective encapsulants, and thermal management options that protect electronic devices from environmental impact, remove heat to increase efficiency, and offer long life to solar power systems. These products protect electronic components from wear and tear and the effects of the surrounding environment, providing long life and reliable performance to solar power systems.
Solar power inverters are used to convert solar energy into useful form to be returned to the grid, stored in a battery, or used by the user. Power optimizers and microinverters are devices that increase efficiency, reduce power losses due to module misalignment, and allow greater flexibility in solar installations.
These new PV Dow products, which Mascherpa provides, ensure that conversion systems are protected from their surroundings and that they operate reliably and efficiently throughout their useful life.
