IP FAB's lab activities

Our analytical lab can support:

  • R&D projects
  • (contract) Foil production
  • Lamination process optimalisation at module manufacturers


Exemples of analytical tests are :

QC and

process advice

For exemple:

  • Encapsulant gelcontent determination via Soxhletextraction
  • Peeltests for adhesion determination
  • Foil shrinkage characterization
  • UV-VIS spectroscopy for optical characterization.

Trouble shooting and foil characterization

FTIR for polymer compositon determination

Microscopy:

  • cross section
  • defect analyses even on full size modules

Determination of additiv compositon

R&D

projects

Actual projects are in:

  • PV polymers
  • Interlayers for the building industry.


In collaboration with IP FAB’s network we can offer high tech techniques such as TGA, DSC, DMA, SEM and high-end optical measurements.
