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. Prior to the laminating process, the machine accurately applies the material within a tenth of a millimeter from the edge of substrate glasses. 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 the construction of machines to produce insulating glass in which 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

The highest available butyl sealing precision
Active and effective vapor barrier prior to the 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

When making first-class architectural glass, being able to produce high-quality glass consistently is key. Tristar Glass Inc. specializes in fabricating large architectural glass that can be used in interior and exterior applications. The manufacturing process needs to be well thought-out and completed, as they are committed to delivering their customers with the highest quality glass in the shortest possible lead time. After Glaston upgraded Tristar’s existing lamination lines, they have been able to manufacture all of their products with a significantly lower rejection rate.
