Adding Efficiency Through Innovation
When Materials Matter™, you never stop improving them.
DuPont continues to set the pace of innovation in the solar industry by continuously introducing leading performance PV metallization pastes (including PERC, n Type, IBC) that deliver ever-greater solar panel efficiency and power.
We’ve introduced more than 120 new DuPont™ Solamet® products in just over 8 years. Each gain in efficiency reduces Balance of System (BoS) cost because less land is needed to generate the same power, installation and structure costs are lower, and operating and maintenance costs are reduced.
In the past 12 years, Solamet® pastes have helped enable solar cell improvements that have yielded 30% higher cell efficiencies, which means you can generate the same power with half the panels (and panel space).
DuPont was also rated highest of any paste supplier in product quality consistency, according to a recent SAI survey of solar cell and panel manufacturers. We work closely with our customers to optimize product performance and customize products to help ensure the highest possible yield.
All of our production facilities are ISO 9001:2008 quality certified and ISO 14001 environmental management systems (EMS) certified. DuPont Photovoltaic Solutions – delivering proven paste efficiency and lasting value, day after day.
