DuPont Microcircuit Materials (MCM) recently announced the introduction of DuPont™ Solamet® PV412 photovoltaic (PV) metallization paste for thin film PV technologies.

Thin film PV is projected to become the fastest-growing segment of the solar module industry because it has the potential to reduce the cost of producing solar energy. “Solar cell manufacturers can significantly reduce the cost per watt of solar energy by using high-performing materials,” said Robert Cockerill, Thin Film Photovoltaic marketing manager, MCM. “We worked closely with leading thin film PV manufacturers as we developed Solamet® PV412, to reach our shared goal -- making solar energy more competitive with other forms of energy generation.” For this product, DuPont collaborated with Ascent Solar Technologies, Inc., a manufacturer of lightweight flexible photovoltaics used for portable power and building integrated photovoltaic products.  DuPont Photovoltaic Solutions expects to nearly triple annual sales across all product platforms to more than $1 billion in 2012 based on strong fundamentals for long-term revenue growth in the photovoltaic solar energy market as well as our ability to deliver new technologies to the solar industry. To learn more, visit http://photovoltaics.dupont.com.DuPont Microcircuit Materials (MCM) recently announced the introduction of DuPont™ Solamet® PV412 photovoltaic (PV) metallization paste for thin film PV technologies. Thin film PV is projected to become the fastest-growing segment of the solar module industry because it has the potential to reduce the cost of producing solar energy.
