Dow plans two new sites for plastic encapsulant films

August 04/2011

(Plastics Today) -- Dow Chemical Company introduced its Enlight polyolefin encapsulant film technology just one year ago but already demand has grown to the point the company needs new capacity, and globally. As a result, the plastics and chemicals supplier now plans to add capacity for these films in Germany and Thailand to support the extrusion line already running in Findlay, OH.

Dow (Philadelphia, PA) says the new lines will be installed at its facilities in Map Ta Phut, Thailand, and in Schkopau, Germany, with both to be built in 2012. "Converting solar energy into an efficient source of electricity is an area of expertise Dow will continue to develop," says Brij Sinha, global market manager for photovoltaics, performance plastics. "Demand for photovoltaic modules has been growing at about 30% per year, and is expected to continue at this rate for the next several years." The Findlay facility began production late last year.
