The first polycarbonate (PC) building-integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) panels: Lexan™
As demand for solar power rises, SABIC is helping to drive the feasibility and integration of this increasingly preferred energy source with its innovative Lexan™ BIPV panels. These are the first polycarbonate (PC) building-integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) panels for roofing, cladding and glazing applications. They give architects and builders enhanced design freedom, thermal insulation, easy installation and energy production in a single, integrated solution. Lexan BIPV panels combine tough, lightweight, transparent Lexan™ Thermoclear™ PC sheet with flexible PV laminated crystalline cells and are available in a broad range of structures, configurations and colors.
