Engineered Materials Systems introduces low-cost snap cure conductive adhesive for stringing solar modules
Published: 27 July 2015 - Marianne Evans
Engineered Materials Systems, a leading global supplier of conductive interconnect materials for photovoltaic applications, introduced its new EMS 561-403 Low-Cost Snap Cure Conductive Adhesive for stringing applications in crystalline silicon and thin-film solar modules. EMS 561-403 is designed to electrically interconnect solar cells using ribbons.
The adhesive is stress absorbing to withstand the rigors of thermal cycling and features excellent conductive stability to cell and ribbon metallisation 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 561-403 is approximately 50% lower cost than standard silver filled conductive adhesives.
The 561-403 conductive adhesive is the latest addition to Engineered Conductive Materials’ full line of conductive adhesives for photovoltaic applications.
