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

“We’ve always been an important partner to the large window manufacturers in Finland. Listening to their needs and responding has helped us stay competitive in this market,” Tommi Nousiainen, CEO of PLG in Finland, explains. “We were not specifically looking for a tempering furnace. But when our customers began to require high-quality tempered glass, we moved swiftly ahead with an entry-level Glaston RC model. Since then, we have already been able to upgrade the line twice in response to the rapidly evolving market.”

“Although our goal is to be one of the leading smart and safety glass manufacturers in Finland, we didn’t have the time needed to install a completely new furnace,” says Raiko Mäkeläinen, Technical Manager at Lasiliiri. “Instead, we went with a significant Glaston’s FC-zone upgrade, which enabled us to leapfrog to the very latest heating technology in a quick, cost-effective and sustainable manner.”
