Alpha Assembly Solutions, producer of electronic soldering and bonding materials, is introducing the Alpha PV-38i, its newest liquid soldering flux for PV tabbing and stringing.
This is a zero-rosin, no-clean flux specifically designed to meet the demanding requirements of the photovoltaic industry. This tabbing and stringing flux has the lowest solids formula (1.10 %) available in the industry.
“PV-38i employs a unique proprietary activator system that limits pollution inside tabbing and stringing equipment and spray nozzles, with practically zero residue present after soldering”, said Mike Previti, the company’s Global Product Manager for Flux, a part of the MacDermid Performance Solutions Group of Businesses. “This formula also allows an extended shelf life versus many other competitive fluxes in the industry”.
In addition, the unique chemistry of this liquid flux provides excellent soldering with fast wetting in standard module assembly processes, employing widely used methods (preheat and soldering) for both spray on cell or dip applications.
