Company Description

Headquartered in Houston, Texas, with locations around the world, Quanex Building Products Corporation is an industry-leading manufacturer of components sold to Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) in the building products industry. Quanex designs and produces energy-efficient fenestration products in addition to kitchen and bath cabinet components.

Quanex's Solargain sealants are durable, non-conductive and inherently UV stable. They exhibit excellent adhesion to glass, and are desiccated to trap moisture before it reaches the active cell area. Solargain products are compatible with commonly used encapsulants, including EVA, PVB and POE (TPO), and deliver superior protection against moisture and related damage.

Quanex Introduction

Products


Solar Module Sealants

Solargain® Edge Selant is a Polyisobutylene Butyl rubber adhesive with integrated desiccant used as an edge seal for thin film and crystalline silicon Photovoltaic modules. It delays moisture ingress, thus helping to protect cells, connections, and transparent conductive oxide coatings from corrosion and degradation. Solargain® Edge Selant also provides electrical isolation for PV modules. This technology has been successfully used in 1500V modules and meets the component criteria for a cemented joint (UL 1703 Section 42A). This enables active cell area to be placed closer to the edge of glass than without solid insulation.



Solargain products are available in two formats:


Solargain Edge Tape SET

SET is available as a tape produced to dimensions that meet your needs. Tape can be applied manually or with automated application equipment.


Pumpable Solargain Edge Tape (PSET)

PSET is  liquid-applied offering the same performance as SET.  It is packaged in 200 liter drums for convenient shipping, unloading, and storage.  It can be used with commonly available dispensing systems and a variety of automated application equipment.
