3M announced the commercial launch of two new charge-collection tapes for use in the manufacturing of thin-film solar modules: 3M Charge-Collection Solar Tape 3007 and 3M Charge-Collection Solar Tape 3011. These tapes are available globally in standard and custom dimensions. 3M charge-collection solar tapes can be applied at high speeds using automation to various thin-film target substrates, resulting in enhanced manufacturing productivity. The “no-mess,” pressure-sensitive adhesive provides for immediate hold, and ensures the tape stays in place during the panel assembly process. The tin-plated copper foil provides for corrosion-resistance and solderability to bus bars. Both tapes have shown durable test performance for high currents.
