Targray Launches New Aluminum Paste from World-Leading Manufacturer Giga Solar

Targray Technology International announces that it has been appointed as the global distributor of Giga Solar Materials Corp.'s new Back Surface Aluminum Paste.

Montreal, Quebec, Canada, December 5th, 2011—Targray Technology International announces that it has been appointed as the global distributor of Giga Solar Materials Corp.'s new Back Surface Aluminum Paste. With the signing of this long-term agreement—which spans across Europe, North America and India—Targray now offers a back side aluminum paste that provides a uniform, high quality back surface field (BSF) for mono and multi-crystalline silicon solar cells.


"New low bowing aluminum pastes are necessary to enable cell manufacturers to save costs and move to thinner silicon wafers while maintaining low cell breakage rates," said Patrick Boutard, Product Manager at Targray. "Cell manufacturers are under constant pressure for efficiency gains to drive down their cost per watt. We have seen repeatedly that Giga Solar's new aluminum paste is the right material to enable these efficiencies and we're very excited to bring this excellent product to market."

Giga Solar's back side aluminum paste provides an excellent back surface field for mono and multi-crystalline silicon solar cells. The paste is designed for excellent efficiency, low bowing, high material compatibility, better adhesion strength and wide process window.

"Targray's strong footprint across Europe, North America, and India makes them the ideal partner for Giga Solar," said Cafer Huang, President, Giga Solar Materials Corp. "They have a world-renowned reputation for the cost-effective, best-in-class PV materials they supply to solar cell manufacturer markets, and consequently they were the natural choice for the launch of our new aluminum paste in these very important markets."

SolarEdge Technologies - Solar Inverters, Power Optimizers and PV Monitoring

The SolarEdge PV inverter combines sophisticated digital control technology with efficient power conversion architecture to achieve superior solar power harvesting and best-in-class reliability. The fixed-voltage technology ensures the solar inverter is always working at its optimal input voltage over a wider range of string lengths and regardless of environmental conditions. A proprietary data monitoring receiver has been integrated into the inverter and aggregates the power optimizer performance data from each PV module. This data can be transmitted to the web and accessed via the SolarEdge Monitoring Portal for performance analysis, fault detection and troubleshooting of PV systems.
