Photovoltaics - Thin Film Substrates

Melinex® & Melinex® ST™ PET polyester films

DuPont Teijin Films, the world's leading supplier of polyester films, offers PV module manufacturers a range of films suitable for use as deposition substrates in rigid and flexible thin film modules.

These films offer excellent dielectric strength and robust mechanical properties, which can be further enhanced via coatings, additives and process conditions to improve the environmental resistance and adhesion performance. Products from DuPont Teijin Films have found application in a wide range of thin film photovoltaic technologies including amorphous silicon, dye sensitised solar cells (DSSC), organic photovoltaics (OPV) and other emerging platforms.

Melinex® ST™ polyester films are off-line heat stabilized to provide excellent dimensional stability and allow for better performance in high temperature processes.
