We’re able to offer a growing portfolio of solutions that deliver proven and lasting value due to our commitment to five areas:
DuPont™ Tedlar® is the long-standing benchmark for the industry. Newer materials have since emerged, but none demonstrate the durability and longevity Tedlar® has over its more-than-35-year history in the field. As the industry seeks to maximize returns by extending system lifetimes, Tedlar® continues to be the clear choice for backsheets.
DuPont™ Solamet® continues to set new standards for efficiency. Solamet® is the first choice for customers who seek to continually improve solar cell and panel efficiencies, to ultimately reduce costs.
Durability and Protection
Fortasun™ brand silicone encapsulants provide solar modules excellent durability and protection against corrosion and delamination. Fortasun™ encapsulant series technology builds on the UV stability of the silicone molecule to enhance durability of crystalline silicon modules.
We focus on not only delivering higher power output over the course of a lifetime, but also greater safety, peace-of-mind and lower risk, which add up to lifetime returns that are both higher and more predictable.
Recent history has shown there is no substitute for field-testing, and no one else even comes close to us in this area. We have vigorously evaluated our field-proven materials in extreme environments for over 35 years, and we continue to do so today.
With expertise spanning two centuries, diverse industries and more than 90 countries, our company is uniquely positioned to help solve some of the world’s biggest challenges.
For more than 200 years, DuPont has brought world-class science and engineering to the global marketplace through innovative products, materials and services. Our market-driven innovation introduces thousands of new products and patent applications every year, serving markets as diverse as agriculture, nutrition, electronics and communications, safety and protection, home and construction, transportation and apparel.
Today, DuPont is proud to build on this heritage by partnering with others to tackle the unprecedented challenges in food, energy and protection now facing our world. With global population expected to approach nine billion by 2050, DuPont is working with customers, governments, NGOs and thought leaders to discover solutions to today’s toughest challenges.
Together, we believe we can provide enough healthy food for people everywhere, decrease dependence on fossil fuels, and protect people and the environment for generations to come.
We look forward to what a third century of science and innovation can do.
