Electrically Conductive Adhesives for Assembly of Solar Devices

Posted on 6/22/2018 7:00:00 AM By ASC

Henkel reports that its range of electrically conductive adhesives (ECAs) will help manufacturers of solar devices to reduce costs and improve reliability. The LOCTITE ABLESTIK ICP 8000 series will be compatible with a range of assembly processes and Henkel says that its adhesives will also enhance module performance.

The company says its ECAs can bond solar cell wafers with a thickness of as little 160 µm and can be dispensed at speeds of more than 200mm per second. Furthermore, it is compatible with third-generation photovoltaic cells as well as PERC, n-PERT, and HJT cell architectures. Curing occurs in under30 seconds and in under 10 seconds 150°C. The adhesive will also absorb the stress of CTE mismatches and is compatible with Ag, Sn and SnPb ribbon. The peel strength of the adhesive is 1.2 N/mm+. The LOCTITE ABLESTIK ICP 8000 series is available in all regions around the globe.
