Adhesives for stringing and shingling solar modules

Engineered Material Systems, Inc. (EMS) announces its new 561-400 series Low-Cost Snap Cure Conductive Adhesives. The 561-400 series is designed for stringing and shingling crystalline silicon and heterojunction solar modules. The EMS 561-400 series is designed to be used in modified ribbon stringers. The material will snap cure and fixture ribbons in seconds at 150 °C with enough strength to withstand module manufacturing processes until the adhesive cure is completed during the encapsulant lamination process. EMS 561-400 series conductive adhesives can be dispensed by time-pressure, auger or jetting. The adhesive is more stress absorbing than solder to withstand the rigors of thermal cycling and processes at lower temperatures than solder. EMS 561-400 series conductive adhesives are 60% less expensive than pure silver-filled conductive adhesives.
