The problem of browning in a number of EVA (ethylene vinyl acetate) encapsulated flat plate photovoltaic modules has led to the questioning of EVA as a suitable material for such applications. By isolating the variables that could possibly lead to EVA browning, such as module construction, types of glass superstrate, additives, and processing conditions, we have been able to determine those significant specific variables that seem to have the most influence on discoloration. When "standard-cure… CONTINUE READING
