BioSolar Is Ready to Begin Shipping BioBacksheet

Published August 1st 2012 at 2:42pm

BioSolar, Inc. today announced that it has completed all technical UL certifications necessary to begin shipping BioBacksheet to solar manufacturers.

Dr. David Lee, commented, "I am pleased to report that we have finally completed all the UL certifications required for the commercial sale of BioBacksheet. This includes UL's 130-degree C Relative Thermal Index (RTI) recognition, where BioBacksheet far surpassed the performance of competitive products at the conclusion of the 14 month long test. RTI is the temperature below which a material will not be compromised by long term thermally induced chemical degradation. Passing this last test means that we are ready to accept orders from solar panel manufacturers for high volume production of BioBacksheet."

"During the first half of this year, we increased our customer pipeline and are now working closely with several key solar manufacturers to integrate BioBacksheet into their panels," Dr. Lee added. "As we previously reported, BioSolar has entered into a contract manufacturing agreement with Stevens Urethane, a high quality, high volume commercial manufacturer, to produce BioBacksheet. This gives us the capacity to ship orders of virtually any size. For the balance of this year, we will focus on expanding our sales program and aggressively marketing the unique cost cutting and performance enhancing features of BioBacksheet."

In order for solar panels containing BioBacksheet to be sold in the general marketplace, full panel samples must be submitted to UL for UL 1703 certifications. This is the last technical step before commercial orders. BioSolar reports that one potential customer has already received this panel level UL 1703 certification.
