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 Intersolar Europe show taking place June 22 – 24 in Munich, Germany.
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,” said Mike Murphy, Senior Global Product Manager, Solid Solder Alloys and PV Interconnect Materials. “This will also add incentive for expanding solar installations and be a better long-term strategy to ensure the environment is not harmed when these materials are disposed.”
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, Narahari S. Pujari, Manager of New Business Development, will be participating in Poster Session (#5BV.1.38) entitled “Compatibility of PV Ribbons and Fluxes with EVA Encapsulant Films.”
