The types of photovoltaic film include EVA film material film and POE material film. EVA film includes traditional transparent EVA film and white EVA film. Film, etc., POE film includes cross-linked, thermoplastic, white, co-extrusion and other types. Here is a recent ranking of photovoltaic film companies in China. In the following, those companies will be introduced in detail.
The function of the adhesive film in the photovoltaic module is to glue the photovoltaic glass, battery sheet and back sheet together, and at the same time protect the battery sheet and isolate the air. It accounts for 3%-4% of the cost in the component, which is relatively low. Although the photovoltaic technology route has undergone many iterations, the adhesive film is an indispensable part of the several generations of products that have been developed so far.
Therefore, in photovoltaic modules, the demand for adhesive films is relatively certain. The demand for photovoltaic adhesive film will increase steadily with the growth of installed capacity. At present, crystalline silicon modules are mainly packaged with photovoltaic film and photovoltaic backplane.
