photovoltaic TPA

Efficient moisture prevention for sensitive thin-film substrates


Looking to protect substrate glasses against moisture?
Here are three reasons why photovoltaic TPA is your best choice

1.

HIGH-PRECISION BUTYL APPLICATION ON THE EDGE OF SUBSTRATE GLASSES

2.

ACTIVE MOISTURE BARRIER PRIOR TO THE LAMINATING PROCESS

3.

POSSIBILITY TO INTEGRATE 24-7 OPERATION IN EXISTING UNITS

Encapsulate and actively protect against moisture


The photovoltaic TPA applies high-viscous butyl onto semiconductor thin-film substrates, effectively protecting the semiconductor against moisture. The machine accurately applies the material to the edge of the substrate glasses to a tenth of a millimeter prior to the laminating process. Two high-performance pumps ensure that the viscous sealing material is always available – for real 24-hour operation.

The technology is based on decade-long experience in machine construction for the production of insulating glass, where thermoplastic material is applied as a spacer between the glass plates. In the solar power industry, horizontal machines, as well as vertical designs, are used for sealing all types of semiconductors.

Option: Butyl sealing for junction boxes

Highest available butyl sealing precision
Active and effective vapour barrier prior to lamination process

Different application processes

  • Interruption-free application in the corners
  • Completely tight application
  • Interruption between the application in the corners
  • Corners are closed during the lamination process

“The market in Vietnam for cars is very large with lots of room for growth. People are becoming wealthier, and sitting in a car is more comfortable than being on a scooter, which may be prohibited in the next few years,” says Nguyen Phuong Tran, Production Manager, and son of Long Nhien Automotive Glass’s owners, about his home market. “The Glaston Matrix windshield bending furnace is a stepping stone for us to tap into this rapidly expanding business of hundreds of thousands new cars per year.”

“Be it architects, façade engineers or homeowners, people expect high-quality glass products with shorter delivery times. Execution, precision, accuracy and aesthetics all affect customer satisfaction – and higher customer satisfaction leads to extended relationships and more business. We are proud that Bojar is one of only a few companies in the market that offers tempered glass without visible anisotropy,” says Krzysztof Harasimowicz, Bojar Sales Director.
