Understand the UL Requirements & Get Your PV Materials to Market Faster!
Polymeric materials play an important role in the safety performance of photovoltaic modules. In addition to assessing the module itself, separate investigations are required to evaluate and characterize the polymeric material properties. PV material compliance with established standards is essential for manufacturers who aim to have their modules certified by Underwriters Laboratories.
Join Crystal Vanderpan, UL’s Principal Engineer for Photovoltaic Materials and Printed Circuit Technologies and Sander Nieuwenhuijzen, Business Development Manager for Chemicals in Europe, as they discuss the UL requirements for polymeric materials in PV modules, thermal aging testing of backsheet materials, the preselection program, and more, which will help you get your PV polymeric materials to market faster.
