DuPont™ Solamet® photovoltaic metallization pastes
Innovative Solamet® pastes help make solar panels more powerful by consistently improving efficiency and yields for today’s leading edge solar cell designs. A little paste means a lot of power.
Boosting Efficiency and Yields
- DuPont collaborates closely with solar cell and panel manufacturers to optimize efficiency and customize materials to help them realize the highest possible yield and long term power output.
Setting the Pace of Innovation
- DuPont has introduced one innovation after another - more than 110 new Solamet® products over the last 7 years alone - by investing in innovation from concept to commercialization.
Delivering Consistent Quality
- Solamet® pastes have been highest rated among manufacturers for product quality and consistency. Solamet® paste production facilities are ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001 certified for meeting rigorous quality and environmental management standards.
These are just a few of the reasons why more than 20 billion solar cells have been made using Solamet® pastes over the past 30 years, and why solar panels continue to produce more power, more reliably and cost-effectively than ever before.
