3.2MM FULLY TEMPERED GLASS = BETTER HAIL RESISTANCE

jinkosolar

3.2mm fully tempered glass

Hail resistance up to 55mm hailstone

other manufaturers

2.0mm Heat Strengthened Glass

Many 2.0 modules only pass up to 45mm hailstone resistance test,
while others have failed

PROBABILITY OF
>2-INCH (50.8MM) HAIL

MEAN NUMBER OF HAIL

>50.8MM DAYS PER YEAR

Glass + Backsheet Structure = 40+ Years Field Proven

Breathable backsheet allows moisture and gases from encapsulant degradation to be released out of module
