EVA (Ethylene Vinyl Acetate) – Definition, Glossary, Details – Solar Mango

EVA(Ethylene Vinyl Acetate) is an encapsulant for solar Cells/ Modules. It is a copolymer film which acts as an essential sealant of photovoltaic solar modules for ensuring the reliability and performance. Encapsulant sheets play an important role in preventing water and dirt from infiltrating into solar modules as well as protecting the cell by softening the shocks and vibrations to the cell. They should possess certain properties like excellent durability,adhesive bonding to the cell and glass, excellent optical transmission and transparency and flexibility. Cells are encapsulated before being laminated with glass and the backsheet.
