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
