Emerging of Vistasolar white EVA 520.88, a new generation of TPIAS EVA encapsulants.
TPI All Seasons introduced 521 Series with PID resistance properties. New EVA encapsulant with Ultra-High volume resistivity has been developed.
TPI All Seasons introduced the first generation of an EVA interlayer for laminated glass
TPI All Seasons acquires the EVA encapsulant division of Eastman Chemical. The transfer of trademark, technology and manufacturing facility are completed by mid-2014 and production resumed.
Vistasolar formulations are improved. The new 520 Series of EVA encapsulants are designed to increase yields, improve durability and enhance energy absorption (lower UV) for solar panels. Eastman Chemical acquires Solutia.
Solutia, industry leader in PVB films for architectural, automotive and aerospace applications, enters the photovoltaic market by acquiring Etimex Solar of Germany; the market leader of EVA encapsulants in Europe.
TPI All Seasons starts manufacturing Polene Solar, a high quality EVA encapsulant for photovoltaic modules.
TPI Polene starts its own EVA encapsulant division called TPI All Seasons.
Etimex Solar launches Vistasolar Ultra Fast cure to speed up solar panel manufacturing output.
With the rise of the Asian Tiger economies, TPI Polene decides to expand its production capacity of EVA resins to 158.000 MT per annum.
TPI Polene, South East Asia’s leader in petrochemicals, starts EVA manufacturing with an initial production capacity of 87.000 MT per annum. Etimex Packaging of Germany develops a laminant made of EVA to encapsulate the electronic components in solar modules. From then on Etimex Solar starts branding Vistasolar 485.
