Many of these sensors have components that are fixed with adhesives and are protected with encapsulants
0% was achieved with silicone, TS1-3, TS1-2, and TS1-1 as the encapsulant
, respectively (Fig.
The films feature high encapsulant
performance, eliminating the need for using edge seals on the PV module to help stop water from leaking inside.
is extensively used in construction, automotive, and electronics applications.
Silica or alumina filler material is added to the base compound to reduce the coefficient of thermal expansion of the encapsulant
, with thermally conductive alumina offering the added benefit of heat dissipation.
The series encapsulant
is DuPont's first ionomer sheet to be available in convenient roll form, easing storage and handling for large-volume, high-speed manufacturing.

The Roof Collection solar tiles use new DuPont PV5300 Series encapsulant
to improve module strength, durability and cost-per-watt efficiency.
Curing time is much shorter with the new, less-expensive encapsulant
, which has significantly improved physical properties and also creates less fumes, making it safer.
Development of a 25 watt NPN transistor, housed in a plastic encapsulant
eliminating the conventional metal semiconductor case, has resulted in a cost of less than 40 cents for each transistor in large quantities.
The 5 Minute Epoxy FR is a fast-setting encapsulant
for potting aerospace inserts and for other OEM applications requiring a self-extinguishing adhesive.
Further, this encapsulant
protects windings from handling damage while also facilitating heat dissipation.
