Engineered Materials Systems, introduced its new EMS 561-147-2 Low-Cost Snap Cure Conductive Adhesive for stringing or shingling applications in crystalline silicon and thin-film solar modules. EMS 561-147-2 is designed to electrically interconnect solar cells using ribbons or direct cell to cell contact.
The adhesive is stress absorbing to withstand the rigors of thermal cycling and features conductive stability to cell and ribbon metallization during damp heat exposure. Additionally, the conductive adhesive is designed to cure in seconds at 180°C or above to enable fast fixturing of the cells in the stringer. EMS 561-147-2 is approximately 50% lower cost than standard silver-filled conductive adhesives.
