Low Temperature Metallization Pastes for Thin Film and c-Si Solar Cells
Also referred to as “grid inkˮ, “silver inkˮ, and “conductive inkˮ, Indium Corporation offers screen printable low-temperature metallization pastes for thin-film PV technologies such as CIGS, a-Si and certain c-Si applications.
Low temperature metallization paste is a silver- or silver/copper-filled front side current collector material used on thin-film solar cells. It gets its low-temperature label because it is processed at lower-than-traditional glass frit temperatures of ~1,000°C.
Indium Corporation’s low-temperature metallization pastes offer industry leading print performance, contact resistance, and volume resistivity. LT-918 silver-filled metallization paste has been tested against leading commercial metallization pastes and has been proven to optimize print performance and resist cold slump after printing, which minimizes shadowing and increases cell efficiency.
Designed by Award-Winning Chemists
Indium Corporation’s low-temperature metallization paste, LT-918, is designed by the same award-winning chemists who also developed the industry-leading printing solder pastes and conductive epoxies for the SMT and semiconductor industries.

For this week’s World of Solder Preforms series installment, Brandon Judd explains the importance of reflow profiling: Solder preforms are a very common method of reducing voiding in a soldered device with larger X/Y dimensions. Compared to solder paste (which is approximately 50% flux by…
Folks, Richard asks: Dear Dr. Ron, Recently we had a solderability problem with tin-finished component leads and SAC305 solder paste. One of our engineers claimed that the problem was that the tin finish melts at too high a temperature (Tm= 232°C) for the SAC305 solder paste (Tm = 219°C)…
There are at least three significant reasons to use indium solder alloys in your die-attach operation: Physical performance, Supplier reliability, Material dependability: Physical: Indium-containing solder paste is very well proven in low temperature usage, however it is also used in some specific…
