Features of the product

  • Capable of forming desirable texture size (Capable Size : 2 – 10μm)
  • No Si Aging necessary and Long Si Life  (Si Concentration : 0 – 4%)
  • Texturing is capable on various kinds of substances.
    Applicable Substrates:Substrates sliced with fixed abrasive and loose abrasive
    SDE treated substrates, p-type and n-type silicon substrate
  • Improving conversion efficiency by reducing reflectance of substrate surface after process
  • TK81 has low viscosity and easy to prepare and supply in the process
     (1/7 of existing product TK80)
  • Ecological and gives simple process control
