Borealis and Borouge, leading providers of innovative, value-creating plastics solutions, announce their support for a Belgium-based racing team participating in the 2019 Bridgestone World Solar Challenge in Australia. Solar encapsulant film based on grades from Borealis’ pioneering Quentys portfolio will be used to protect and maximize the full potential of the solar cells of the team’s racing car.
According to PV-Tech news, Borealis and Borouge’s said that they had signed a two-year sponsorship agreement with the team from KU Leuven University in Belgium in anticipation of being placed higher in the next two races.
In June 2018, the commercial launch of two new encapsulant film types based on Borealis Quentys polyolefin (PO) grades were claimed to bring further improvements to long-term PV module performance and reliability, as well as greater cost efficiency. These films are now being used to encapsulate and protect the solar cells mounted on the racing car.
The biennial Bridgestone World Solar Challenge is a grueling, 3,000-km race across challenging outback landscapes, and the ultimate test for a solar-powered vehicle. ——————–***——————–
