RenewSys received a credit rating of A(Stable)/A2+. This is a significant leap and it highlights our continuously improving financial performance. It is an encouraging signal to the industry of our growth.
Know Your Backsheet
RenewSys tested two types of PV Backsheet samples - laminated and coated - for their resilience to abrasion and chemical resistance.
The abrasion test was conducted by rubbing sandpaper on the airside of both the backsheets.
The laminated backsheet performed well with no visible abrasion. However, a significant amount of coating particles were visible on the sandpaper, with abrasion marks from the process, on the coated backsheet.
The second test involved wiping both the backsheets with a cloth dipped in solvent. The laminated backsheet showed no visible physical change. But the coated backsheet, left significant residue on the cloth.
These tests give visual comparative evidence helping module manufacturers and installers witness how backsheets perform when exposed to conditions like abrasion, and chemical exposure due to pollution.
A backsheet that underperforms or fails, compromises the performance
and life of the module.
