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.

If you haven’t heard about Bi-containing (bismuth) solder alloys recently, that may change in the near future. Low-melting Bi-containing solders are now in increasing use and gaining popularity due to their lower melting temperatures—58Bi/42Sn is eutectic at 138°C and 57Bi/42Sn/1Ag melts…
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…
As with many companies exhibiting at SMTAI, Indium Corporation is featuring several new products that address many of the concerns of our customers. I recently posted about Indium10.1, a Pb-free solder paste that prevents voiding under large components, and we recently introduced RMA-155, a…
