KIC to Exhibit Products for Increased Cell Efficiency through Process Optimization at EU PVSEC 2010

KIC's partnership with the Balver Zinn group has expanded into the solar cell manufacturing industry with the company now selling KIC's SunKIC, e-Clipse and Spectrum products, which will be on display in booth L2/H4/A51a at the 25th EU PVSEC in Valencia, Spain from 6-9 September 2010.

San Diego — August 2010 — KIC, the leader of thermal process development and control products, and winner of multiple industry awards, announces that its partnership with the renowned Balver Zinn group has expanded into the solar cell manufacturing industry with the company now selling KIC's award-winning SunKIC, e-Clipse and Spectrum products. These have demonstrated up to 0.51 percent cell efficiency improvements through more accurate and repeatable profiling and process improvements.


Balver Zinn will display the KIC products in booth L2/H4/A51a at the 25th EU PVSEC in Valencia, Spain from 6-9 September 2010. Balver Zinn also will distribute free copies of research papers and application notes demonstrating the use and capabilities of these new products.

Until recently, cell manufacturers had only a limited ability to identify better furnace settings and to periodically adjust the furnaces when the process changed, for example after preventive maintenance. KIC's new technologies allow cell manufacturers to control their own thermal process results with significant productivity and profitability improvements.

GreenFasten™ solar panel roof mount hardware, watertight, USA made

GreenFasten™ solar panel roof mount hardware, watertight, USA made

The GreenFasten™ - GF1 system utilizes the patented watertight technology EcoFasten Solar® is known for. The flashing is fit with our EPDM rubber bushing and when used with a compatible EcoFasten Solar compression bracket (milled with countersink), a watertight seal is created, which protects the integrity of the roof. Requiring just a single fastener (lag bolt or self-drilling), GreenFasten provides the fastest install in the industry and will not void roofing manufacturer's warranties. Backed by IAPMO certification, GreenFasten delivers a mounting solution for all new or existing (retrofit) composition shingle roofs, and is the most cost-effective solution available. Like all of the solar roof mount solutions in our line of products, GreenFasten is made in the USA using recycled materials.
