BRISTOL, Pa., Oct. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- DUNMORE Corporation will be discussing a new procedure developed to test the resilience of the PV backsheet during Solar Power International's Educational Poster Session.

There are few other industries that require their products to last over 20 years.  The backsheet, exposed to the elements and electrical current, is a potential source of module failure that requires exhaustive quality control. Backsheets not subject to adequate quality control can fail before the end of the solar module's designed lifespan.  This procedure was designed to identify the potential for mechanical failures in the field due to maintenance, exposure to elements and physical impact that may occur during the 20+ year operational lifespan. 

DUNMORE Corporation will be discussing this new test methodology at Booth #2570 during Solar Power International October 21-24 in Chicago, IL.  The official presentation will be given by Daniel Bartholoma, DUNMORE Europe GmbH Director of PV Sales, during SPI's Educational Poster session taking place Wednesday October 23 4:30-6p.m. at the Educational Posters Booth #4806.
