Smartech To Attend Intersolar 2016

Smartech To Attend Intersolar North America 2016 | Smartech InternationalCome visit Smartech in San Francisco during the Intersolar North America event in July! From July 13-16, the solar industry holds one of its greatest family reunions at the Moscone Center in downtown San Francisco, California. Smartech will be attending the event and positioned in Moscone West, Level One, Booth 7627.

At the event, Smartech will be introducing to PV module manufacturer attendees Steinbach’s two newest solar membranes. The solar laminator diaphragms are Steinbach’s Durometer 50 (Blue) Diaphragm and Steinbach’s Durometer 60 (Red) Diaphragm. Steinbach’s Durometer 50 (Blue) Diaphragm is available in seamless widths up to 3000mm (118”) and offers great EVA resistance, as well as both a smooth and a textured surface. Steinbach’s Durometer 60 (Red) Diaphragm is also available up to 3000mm (118”) wide and works well with Meyer Burger Laminators.

The two diaphragms come in addition to Steinbach’s revolutionary Lamibran® EVA-resistant diaphragm. If your diaphragms are wearing out because of brittleness from prolonged EVA exposure and if your modules are glass/backer-sheet, the 2-ply Lamibran diaphragm will greatly lower your production costs in terms of time and money saved. Customers that were previously used to reaching around 4,000 cycles from a regular silicone membrane have regularly reported upwards of 12,000 cycles with the Lamibran diaphragm – easily justifying the slightly higher cost!

In addition to the selection of Steinbach module laminator diaphragms (membranes, blankets, or bladders – call them what you like), we’d love to talk to our PV module laminating friends about Steinbach’s array of PTFE coated glass fabric materials for use as release sheets, transport belts and other production uses. Steinbach’s PTFE offerings range from 0.08mm thickness all to .7mm, with both high-PTFE content coatings and anti-static coating options. Several types of PTFE materials are also available with self-adhesive backing.

If your heart will be in San Francisco for the Intersolar North America event, plan to stop by and visit Smartech at Booth 7627. Tell us you read this blog and we’ll have some great swag for you to take with you!
