Engineered Material Systems, Inc. (EMS), a global supplier of conductive interconnect materials for photovoltaic applications, introduces its CA-150 Series snap cure, low cost conductive adhesive for stringing and shingling crystalline silicon and heterojunction solar modules.
A New Generation Technology
The EMS CA-150 series is designed for use in modified ribbon stringers. The material will snap cure and fixture cells and 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 CA-150 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. CA-150 series conductive adhesives are less than half the cost of pure silver-filled conductive adhesives.
