Insights on EVA lamination process: Where do the bubbles come from?
• The identification and control of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) released by polymers during lamination in the photovoltaic (PV) industry is of considerable importance to establish and optimize processes in order to ensure a long term reliability of the manufactured modules. • Bubble formation is one of the cause of delamination, major problems linked to PV module reliability. • Gas chromatography-mass-spectrometry (GC-MS) is used to determine and quantify the VOCs emanating from EVA at 160 C and therefore to understand the origin of the bubbles during the lamination process.
