Materials specialist DuPont Photovoltaic Solutions is launching a new metallisation paste at this week’s PV Expo in Japan.

The company’s new ‘Solamet PV19B’ is claimed to offer a multitude of benefits, including higher PV cell efficiencies and better throughput speeds.

“We are excited to announce the launch of DuPont Solamet PV19B, which can enable more than 0.1 percent cell efficiency improvement over other products currently used in the industry,” said Chuck Xu, global business director, DuPont Photovoltaic Solutions. “We are committed to optimising solar power output and long-term reliability through material science.”

As well as higher cell efficiencies, DuPont said that by virtue of its paste transfer attributes, the new product allowed higher print speeds and thus improved average throughput rates – by as much as 26%, according to the company.

DuPont will be exhibiting at booth E14-37 at PV Expo in Tokyo this week. PV Expo launched today and will run until 4 March.
