Silicone Sheet For Solar Panels Lamination

Start from a brief introduction and let’s explore more about this solar silicone sheet together. Here we go!

Silicone Rubber Sheet For Solar Panel Manufacture

Silicone rubber sheet, also called silicone rubber membrane or silicone diaphragm, is applied for the lamination process of crystalline solar panels. During encapsulating the solar PV panels, the silicone sheet transfers the laminator’s temperature and pressure to modules. Our silicone sheets can work over 10,000 laminating cycles with good eva resistant ability. As a pioneering silicone sheet provider in China, Deer Hunter has been proactively engaging with many solar panel manufacturers to develop custom-crafted sheets that guarantee optimal performance of their modules. This strong collaboration will continue driving innovation for both parties for years to come.

As technology progresses, Deer Hunter has introduced three types of silicone membranes for solar panel industry. They are 2nd Gen5th-lite Gen, and 5th Gen. The solar silicone rubber sheet is mainly designed to protect the crystalline solar panels and the lamination equipment in extreme temperatures.

Silicone Rubber Membrane for Solar Panel Production

As a premier producer of glass and solar industry solutions, Deer Hunter is blazing the trail with their production of ultra EVA resistant silicone membranes for lamination on solar PV panels. Their commitment to innovation allows them to be at the forefront of creating cutting-edge products designed specifically for this ever evolving renewable energy market.

The lamination process involves pumping the air out of the module layers in a vacuum chamber, heating the layers to melt the encapsulant, and pressing the layers together with a flexible diaphragm or membrane to embed the cells in the encapsulant and adhere the front and back sheets. The flexible silicone rubber sheet is attached to the top of the vacuum chamber, and a set of valves allows the space above the diaphragm to be evacuated.

    Solar Silicone Sheet FAQs

    1. What’s the best silicone sheet for solar modules lamination?

    This is really a vital question and can be best discussed together face-to-face. There is no one answer that is right for everybody. There are many determining factors that can affect the choice of silicone sheets. For example type of encapsulant, the composition of the modules, size of the modules, a brand of laminator, and budget constraints, etc.

    2. How long should a silicone sheet last?

    Commonly our data shows that The 2nd Gen – 4,000cycles + The 5th-lite Gen (The 5th Gen) – more than 10,000 cycles. As there are a number of variables beyond our direct control, it is very difficult to “guarantee” an exact cycle life.

    3. Does color or surface finish have any impact on the membrane's performance?

    Based on feedback from many solar panel manufacturers worldwide, we can see no advantage or disadvantage of different colors, or indeed surface finish. Actually, colors are now used to differentiate between suppliers. To be honest, most customers prefer to place an order after testing some samples. It is not a big question.

    4. What can you explain more about the cycle life of a silicone sheet?

    It can be variable as there are many factors outside of control. The improved performance of the material offers the potential for significant improvement, depending on the operating conditions.

    5. Can you do width over 3000mm (3M)?

    Ideally, we can make MAX width up to 3800mm. However, no customer ever needs such width. Some of our regular solar industry customers ever purchased width 3100mm and 3200mm silicone rubber sheet from us. Usually, we do the cutting according to their final dimensions.

    6. What is EVA outgassing?

    During the lamination / encapsulation process of EVA volatile outgassing occurs. Outgassing refers to unwanted chemicals that are usually a bi-product of the process and temperature. These acidic fumes are emitted from adhesive or other components and can lead to corrosion of the Diaphragm/Membrane. This corrosion manifests itself in surface degradation (cracks) + excessive stretching & sagging. 

    7. How can we tell the difference of Deer Hunter solar silicone sheets?

    As technology progresses, there are three types of silicone membranes for the solar industry. Please check or download below technical data sheet for your further distinction.
