Satinal set up innovative Italian Solar PV Encapsulants production hub.
Satinal has been continuing to prioritize innovation, sustainability and research to meet rising market demands, planning an investment in a new solar PV EVA films manufacturing plant in Italy’s Apulia Region. STRATO® SOLAR division will produce EVA, POE and TPO encapsulants for solar panels.
According to Satinal 4-year business plan, the Company plans to house 10 GW annual production capacity and to create close to 100 jobs after the ramp up is complete.
Erba HQ will remain the reference point for the production of STRATO® glass interlayers addressed to outdoor and indoor architecture. 3 production lines will keep on running for the production of 30 million sqm Italian quality STRATO® EVA films, included STRATO® EVA Carbon free version, in order to continue to meet the rising demand of the international market.

Once again, the mission of the Company remains that of consistently invest in innovation and research, the best way to offer the right mix of top-quality, alternative, sustainable and green solutions to its clients.
The new project is, in Satinal’s eyes, a green challenge already partly won, in bringing innovation while increasing sustainability, quality and circularity of processes and products, and investing in alternative energy.
STRATO® SOLAR product range represents a key material for laminating solar panels, in terms of performance and durability. STRATO® EVA SOLAR PV, STRATO® POE SOLAR PV and STRATO® TPO encapsulants provide many benefits in the laminating process. In fact, it is proved that STRATO® SOLAR product range gives structural support, electrical insulation, protection and transparency for the photovoltaic module. Its high level of thermal stability avoids shrinkage of the material during the lamination process, thereby simplifying the process and providing additional savings.
