DuPont Photovoltaic Solutions unveils DuPont Solamet PV21A portfolio


DuPont Photovoltaic Solutions introduced the complete DuPont Solamet PV21A portfolio at the 2018 International Photovoltaic Power Generation Expo in Tokyo, Japan.

Solamet PV21A metallization paste enables excellent fine line printability that can drive cell efficiency enhancement >0.1 percent and maintains high throughput in mass production, the company said.

The optimal balance of good adhesion and low laydown leads to low cost of ownership for cell manufacturers.

The Solamet PV21A product family is designed to fulfill all mainstream cell technology, it also includes product series for advanced printing such as double printing, dual print and mesh cross free screen printing.

The product also delivers high levels of performance on a variety of substrates such as DWS (Dimond Wire Saw) wafer and black silicon.

At the Expo, DuPont is collaborating with TSEC Corporation to demonstrate the latest solar modules powered by Solamet PV21A which helps to deliver increased efficiency and higher power output.

TSEC, a manufacturer of mono- and multi-crystal solar cells and modules, has observed 21.75 percent and 20.3 percent cell efficiency and module power output as high as 315 watts and 300 watts (60 pcs) in its 5 busbar half-cut design mono PERC and multi-PERC black cell modules respectively. Both high-power modules are protected by DuPont Tedlar PVF film.
