Engineered Material Systems, Inc. (EMS), a leading global supplier of conductive interconnect materials for photovoltaic applications, announces the introduction of its new CA-150 Series Snap Cure, Low Cost Conductive Adhesive for stringing and shingling crystalline silicon and Heterojunction solar modules. The new conductive adhesive will be displayed in Hall W3, booths 806/807 at the SNEC PV Power Expo, scheduled to take place April 19-21, 2017 in Shanghai, China.
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 only half the cost of pure silver-filled conductive adhesives.
