CONSTRUCTION COMPONENTS

 

MEDIA FOR PHOTOVOLTAIC

This media is used in both flexible and rigid PV panels. The benefits of our Craneglas® products were initially discovered by NASA in the early 1980’s. The Craneglas® 230 grade- sub weights 4.8, 6.1, and 11.0 have all been used at either the film manufacturer level or the panel manufacturers themselves. The substrate provides many benefits during the encapsulation and laminating processes; creating channels for air flow eliminating bubbles, stabilizing the EVA film to minimize shrinkage and overflow, providing structural stability for thin film flexible modules and prevents shorts caused by cell movement.

 

 

MEDIA FOR ENVIRONMENTAL CONTROL

Dehumidification in desiccant wheels, for pharmaceuticals & industrial pneumatic controls, and humidification to cool homes. The benefits of Neenah products include easy corrugation and holding its shape, along with our ability to apply specialty coatings for desired properties.

 

 

MEDIA FOR THERMAL, ELECTRICAL & ACOUSTICAL INSULATION

Media to be used in appliance, water, and/or chemical tube insulation along with electrical wire & cable wrap applications.

The advantages of our media are based on the wet-laid process which ensures dimensional stability, consistent weight, thickness, and density. It is thermally stable up to 1200°C and has a low thermal conductivity per (ASTM C518). It is resistant to alkaline and acidic environments. Of course, these materials can be combined with our specialty coatings for further specialization per customer request.

 

AEROSPACE COMPOSITES

This media was developed to have high temperature resistance with a thermoplastic base, making it easy to mold. It has superior flame, smoke (ASTM E662) & toxicity (BSS 7239) ratings and are very lightweight.
