Indium Corp. will feature its family of PV Module Assembly Materials, including their industry-adopted GS-3434 No-Clean Liquid Tabbing Flux, at Solar Power International (SPI).
While most fluxes used in the industry were developed for wave soldering applications, Indium Corp. specifically formulated GS-3434 for PV soldering applications. GS-3434 provides excellent bond strengths on a variety of AgAl metallizations for both tin-lead and lead-free processes. The material’s unique formulation enables its use in both spray and flux bath applications, leaving a minimal, clear residue for no-clean operations. Its quick activation at low temperatures also allows for the use of alternate PV ribbon alloys.
Indium Corp. manufactures and distributes materials for thin-film PVD and module assembly. Module assembly materials include SunTab PV ribbon, liquid tabbing fluxes, low temperature metallization paste, flux-cored wire, and solder preforms. Indium Corporation also manufactures NanoFoil, which provides instant heat energy for bonding applications.

Have you checked out our YouTube page?
We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
