Voltaix increases trimethylboron manufacturing capacity to meet thin-film solar demand


Voltaix, LLC has said that it has significantly
increased the production of trimethylboron to meet growing demand from
the PV thin-film manufacturing industry. The product specifications for
oxygen and other key contaminants have also been improved to ensure
that the product will continue to meet the performance requirements of
the solar industry, the company said.


“TMB is particularly well suited for solar process
deposition applications because it has a superior thermal stability
relative to more conventional boron sources. We have also significantly
improved the levels of contaminants in the product to insure that TMB
will continue to provide superior electrical properties in next
generation solar processes,” said Mike Pikulin, Voltaix Senior Vice

Voltaix uses a solvent-free process in the production of trimethylboron.
