“We are pleased that our customer is again relying on BTU and Tritan when increasing their production volumes,” said Jan-Paul van Maaren, Ph.D., VP of marketing at BTU. “This customer, known for high-efficiency solar cells, has found Tritan’s TriSpeed technology enabling, which is consistent with the experimental results many other customers have seen.”

The Tritan metallization firing system, featuring BTU’s exclusive TriSpeed technology, allows users to take advantage of superior ramp rates — up to 200°C per second — while not compromising the drying and cooling sections of the profile. The three-belt, three-speed system provides revolutionary control of profile development. In performance trials, Tritan has consistently shown an improvement in fill factor, resulting in increased efficiency. This, combined with Tritan’s low cost of ownership, delivers the lowest cost per watt.
