Our VAC-SIL® Quality Membranes have been specifically designed to be used as vacuum membranes for Solar/P.V. module lamination, plus the forming or thermo-pressing of vinyl foil veneers on furniture woodwork, composites in aerospace, F1 cars, marine, and on other general products.

Listening to our valued customers and their experiences, VAC-SIL® Quality Membranes have been polymer engineered to give users excellent thermal and mechanical properties, with good chemical resistance that leads to optimum service life.

We can also supply a range of components for solar panel production, such as: Squeegee Edge Profiles, Beltings, Vacuum Seals and Release Sheets. Visit our Precision Components page.

Membrane Cycle life can be variable as there are many factors outside of our control that make it very difficult to give a cast iron guarantee. However, we have been in the Solar business for a long time now – over 10 years now – so taking account of these variables we give a warranty guide as detailed in the descriptions for each grade. See our White Paper: “A Guide for Optimising Membrane Performance”.
