Heraeus, a world leader in developing front and back side silver paste for crystalline solar cells, will be attending this year’s SNEC 5th International Photovoltaic Power Generation Conference and Exhibition in Shanghai, China, February 22 to 24, exhibiting at booth 325 in hall W3.
The company will be highlighting their latest products and hosting an exclusive seminar.
“We look forward to making our 5th consecutive appearance at SNEC, returning as a leader in the market,” said Andy London, Vice President of Heraeus Materials Technology LLC in West Conshohocken. “We’ve launched several new product lines this past year that will be featured at the show. As a leading metallization solution developer and supplier, it is our goal to provide our customers with products that maximize efficiency while lowering their cost.”
Since last year’s show, Heraeus has launched four new product lines for front and back side silver paste. The SOL9383, specially formulated for N-Type crystalline cells, delivers excellent contact on P+ surface of N-Type cells. The SOL109 paste, developed for MWT cells, provides excellent solderability, shunting behavior and conductivity. The SOL9400 Series provides even greater performance over Heraeus’ industry leading SOL9235H paste released in early 2009 for crystalline photovoltaic cells. Finally, Heraeus launched the SOL200 Series for back side tabbing conductors. This was developed to achieve high performance and high adhesion while lowering cost and maintaining good solderability.
Heraeus Photovoltaics Business Unit will also be providing show attendees with an off-site educational seminar on Tuesday, February 22 from 4:00pm – 6:00pm (CST). The seminar will take place at Jin Mao Tower and will feature four guest speakers. Dr. Weiming Zhang, Vice President of Technology for Heraeus PV, will provide insight on Heraeus’ Technology Roadmap and product portfolio for the coming years; Cindy Hu, Deputy Director of Technology for Yingli Solar, will discuss the Yingli Panda Project and Heraeus’ role in this initiative; and finally Linda Hu, a precious metals trading manager from Heraeus, will provide expert insight into the pricing and trends within the silver market. Dinner will be served immediately following the event and transportation will be provided to the seminar from the main entrance of the SNEC exhibit hall at 3:45pm.
