Because You Imagined... Durable, Stronger Renewables
Lighter, More Flexible Solar Engineering
As demand for renewable energy grows, so does the need for solar panels that perform in ever-tougher conditions. While conventional metals limit design flexibility, making solar systems bulky and expensive, UV-resistant, non-corrosive DuPont™ Rynite® resin makes durable, strong and cost-effective components for solar panels – from junction boxes and module frames to structural components.
It’s all possible thanks to our deep knowledge, collaborative partnering and design flexibility, which allow DuPont to help develop solutions for specific industrial challenges. To address the need for custom-design plastics in the solar industry, DuPont’s technical program leader collaborated with others and created the DuPont Polymer Mounting System to show the possibilities of flat-roof solar installation, which continues to gain traction in the industry.
Because You Imagined… durable, stronger renewables.
Structural frames and solar junction boxes made with Rynite® have these features:
- Design/molding flexibility, resulting in manufacturing ease of use
- Long-term weatherability
- Structural and dimensional stability
- Outstanding electrical insulating performance
- A cost-effective solution versus metal
When used in photovoltaic applications, Rynite® can offer a high degree of stiffness for structural strength, excellent outdoor performance, high impact resistance, corrosion resistance and good aesthetics. When used in solar farms or integrated into building designs as a replacement for metal, Rynite® can significantly reduce the weight of the photovoltaic system by 30 to 40 percent.
Cost-Effective Metal Replacement
Concentración Solar La Mancha S.L. selected Rynite® as an alternative to powder-coated aluminum to house and support the frames of its CPV (Concentrated Photovoltaic) modules. Due to the uncertainty and fluctuation of metal prices, Rynite® has become a more cost-effective solution, with an excellent balance of properties and life expectancy similar to aluminum, making it a good candidate for manufacturing structural frames, mounting components, and junction boxes in the photovoltaic industry.
