A wide spectrum of products

Photovoltaic (PV) and Concentrated Photovoltaic (CPV) panels must be productive, long lasting (lifespans of 20 years or more) and resist extreme weather conditions. Silicones ensure that they function properly by protecting vital components and safeguarding electrical integrity (adhesives, electrical insulation, fire resistance) and electronic performance (optical transparency, sealing, bonding, and potting).

Elkem Silicones products cover a wide spectrum of needs in the photovoltaic market:

  • CAF® for frame sealing of panels, protecting against extreme weather conditions

  • CAF®  adhesives for bonding PV junction boxes

  • Bluesil®  RTV-2 for PV potting to ensure longevity

  • Optically transparent silicone Bluesil® RTV-2 for molding CPV Fresnel lenses.

We are available to help you find the right solutions for the assembly, installation and protection of photovoltaic panels, using our customized range of silicones.
