Saint-Gobain Solar launches its SolarBond® Global Support program

As demand for renewable energy sources continues growing, the pressure for solar module manufacturers to produce high-quality modules quickly is more intense than ever. Manufacturing challenges must be resolved with speed and accuracy to reduce downtime and maximize output. A significant step in this process is to help manufacturers choose, implement and most efficiently utilize PV production technologies. With this in mind, Saint-Gobain Solar launches its SolarBond® Global Support program, which is designed to provide tailored support to minimize waste and ensure plants are running at capacity, ultimately saving costs. As part of the program, company specialists offer high-level consultation on use of technologies such as SolarBond® Frame Tapes and SolarBond® Membranes, as well as assist with the adoption of new technologies, including SolarBond® InFrame, an intelligent, innovative and instant solution for solar module manufacturing.

The support program begins with an initial client needs assessment exercise. Laminate and frame adhesion mock-up testing, for example, can be done to evaluate different framing technologies and designs that best suit the client?s individual application requirements. Once the most suitable technology is determined, Saint-Gobain Solar helps to ensure proper implementation. This is key especially for the implementation of new technologies, such as SolarBond® InFrame, where prototype modules can be processed using the customer?s components, after which the modules are returned for internal evaluation or can be submitted for external certification testing. To further support customers, Saint-Gobain Solar is also capable of conducting evaluations on small test samples of all the aging conditions that are applicable to PV modules according to the IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) and UL standards. In the next stage, the SolarBond® support team offers ongoing guidance and support to ensure that manufacturers realize maximum benefits of the new technology installation and enhancements. The program results in reduced costs, labor savings and/or added sustainability benefits.

Saint-Gobain Solar?s support specialists all around the globe possess an extensive base of industry expertise and offer a wide range of solutions to help manufacturers troubleshoot a broad scope of challenges. As an example, module manufactures utilizing SolarBond® Frame Tapes can consider a hand-held tool for applying the tape to modules with increased speed and accuracy during the frame installation process. This tool is available for a variety of tape widths and laminate thicknesses. Saint-Gobain specialists can provide a live on-site demonstration to show the possible end result, eliminating the need for additional appointments.

?Obtaining all the technologies required for the manufacture of solar modules is not the same as being able to piece them all together in a way that ensures maximum output, speed and efficiency over the long-term,? said Geoffrey King, Market Manager, Renewable Energy, Saint-Gobain Solar. ?With our specialized customer support program, we?re able to guide manufacturers in optimizing product and process performance every step of the way to achieve the desired level of productivity and efficiency.?
