Dycotec Materials supply both high volume to some largest solar cell companies in the world and low quantity samples for emerging PV technology. Dycotec Materials have developed a range of conductive and insulator products that find application in thin film solar technology such as CIGS, OPV and perovskite solar cells. Our products ensure solar cells can be produced with high levels of efficiency maximising power generation whilst meeting rigorous durability standards. Use of Dycotec’s silver pastes and inkscopper pastes and inks or carbon pastes , enables high resolution electrode structures to be produced exhibiting both high electrical conductivity and low contact resistance. Our products can be used in combination with our ultra-durable insulator materials.

We have developed a nanosilver based paste DM-SIP-3108S to produce ultra fine line and highly conductive electrode structures that offer excellent long term durability performance.  The use of nanosilver enables thin print thickness to be used requiring reduced amounts of silver and therefore a cost effective solution.  Other published work includes using Dycotec’s DM-SIP-3101S in silicon heterojunction solar cells.

For OPV systems, Dycotec recommend the use of DM-SIP-3064S silver paste to produce highly conductive electrode structures that offer excellent long term durability performance.

For Perovskite Solar Cell use, Dycotec have developed DM-CAP-4701S carbon paste to produce highly conductive electrode structures that offer excellent power conversion efficiency approaching the performance of sputtered gold.  Whilst offering both a lower cost option, being carbon based, and improved long term performance without cell degradation.

For OPV systems, Dycotec recommend the use of DM-SIP-3064S silver paste to produce highly conductive electrode structures that offer excellent long term durability performance.
