Alpha Assembly Solutions to Showcase Environmentally Friendly PV Soldering Materials at SNEC PV Power Expo in Shanghai

Reading time ( words)

Alpha Assembly Solutions, the world leader in the development of non-hazardous solder and electronic assembly materials for photovoltaic manufacturing and assembly, plans to showcase their vast product offering at the SNEC PV Power Expo taking place May 24-26  in Shanghai, China.

As the installation of solar panels continues to expand and early modules begin to be replaced, the industry is estimating growing volumes of PV waste. “Switching over to and incorporating non-hazardous, environmentally friendly manufacturing materials, such as lead-free soldering materials, in conjunction with and in advance of various legislative directives, will be more cost effective for manufacturers, will add incentive for expanding solar installations, and be a better long term strategy for environmental-friendly disposal”, said Mike Murphy, Senior Global Product Manager, Solid Solder Alloys and PV Interconnect Materials.

During the exhibition, Alpha will also be featuring its vast PV product portfolio:

  • ALPHA® Sn/Pb & Pb-Free Solder Alloys
  • ALPHA® Liquid Soldering Fluxes for PV Tabbing & Stringing Applications
  • ALPHA® Telecore XL-825 Cored Solder Wire
  • ALPHA® PV Solder Paste
  • ALPHA® PV-Ready Exactalloy Preforms

In addition, Mike Murphy will be presenting a paper entitled “The implications of the inevitable transition to lead-free soldering to the cSi cell stringing process” on May 25 from 10:30am -10:45am in the Pudong Ballroom 1-3 at the Kerry Hotel.  This paper is to review the benefits and impacts of lead-free products for PV module manufacturing within the context of the various global environmental regulatory legislation and the quickly expanding end-of-life challenges now facing the solar industry.
