Title: PHOTOVOLTAIC SOLAR MODULE
Abstract:
The present invention relates to a photovoltaic solar module, to a method for the production thereof, and to a device for generating electric energy that employs such a solar module. The photovoltaic solar module comprises a frame made of polyurethane, which completely or partially surrounds the solar module and is characterized in that the frame has an elongation at break of at least 50%, an elasticity modulus of at least 30 N/mm2 and a thermal expansion coefficient of up to α = 80*10-6/K. The elasticity modulus and the thermal expansion coefficient are each measured parallel to the module edges.
