Let us help you create panels with longer life and better reliability. Contact our technical department and let’s work together to make the global expansion of solar energy, necessary for the energy transition, a reality.
Maximising the reliability of energy conversion
From the output of the solar panel onwards, a solar power system requires efficient and reliable components to optimise and reliably convert the energy to be used or stored. Advanced silicones provide improved warranties for the industry with excellent resistance to ageing in a wide range of harsh environments to which outdoor devices may be exposed during their lifetime.

Our advanced adhesives, encapsulation and thermal management products protect outdoor electronics from environmental impacts, remove heat to improve efficiency and provide long life for solar power generation systems.

Solar inverters used on photovoltaic module strings convert captured energy into a useful form for return to the grid, storage in a battery or use by the consumer.

Power optimisers and microinverters increase efficiency by mitigating power losses due to panel mismatches, and allow for greater flexibility in solar panel installations.

Dow has several validated and proven technologies to protect these important conversion devices, including thermal protection and sealing solutions.
