Solamet PV52A Rear Side Tabbing Silver Paste
DuPont™ Solamet® PV52A photovoltaic metallization rear side tabbing paste is based on unique chemistry delivering higher cell performance and higher module reliability.
DuPont™ Solamet® PV52A features include:
• 30% Lower unit consumption per cell
• Enhanced solderability and reliability
• More than 30% paste saving
• Sustained higher power output
• Lead and Cadmium free*
DuPont™ Solamet® PV51M photovoltaic metallization rear side paste is a highly conductive solderable silver composition, developed to lower consumption yet providing excellent adhesion when used in conjunction with back side aluminum compositions. This paste may be co-fired with front side (n-type) silver conductors such as DuPont™ Solamet® PV15x and Solamet® PV16x, PV17x PV18x and PV19x and with back side (p-type) aluminum conductors such as DuPont™ Solamet® PV3xx.
DuPont™ Solamet® PV51x features include:
• Excellent printability window
• Co-firable with current Solamet® frontside silver pastes
• Superior adhesion window
• Reduced laydown
• Reduced tab footprint
• Lead and Cadmium free*
Other Tabbing Silver Pastes Include:
Solamet® PV505 & PV506 - A highly conductive silver composition, developed to provide excellent adhesion when used in conjunction with rear side aluminum compositions.
* Lead and Cadmium ‘free’ as used herein means that Lead or Cadmium are not intentionally added to the referenced product. Trace amounts however may be present.
