Plasma Treating Reduces Costs for Photovoltaics Thin Film Manufacturing

Atmospheric plasma systems for roll-to-roll applications improve adhesion to films and foils. It is highly effective at treating a wide range of substrates including aluminum, copper, stainless steel, EVA film, ITO film, PEN film, PET film, polyimide film and glass.

The ability to integrate the completely continuous in-line manufacturing of rigid module and flexible photovoltaics cells by utilizing a variable chemistry surface modification technique relative to complex material constructions significantly reduces manufacturing costs. Inline atmospheric plasma pretreatment is a precursor to coating, laminating and vacuum plasma deposition processes.

Enercon’s Plasma3™ technology increases the surface energy of treated materials resulting in enhancements in surface cleanliness, wettability, printability, and adhesion properties.
