Engineered Material Systems Inc. (EMS), a leading global supplier of conductive interconnect materials for photovoltaic applications, today announced that it will exhibit at the Intersolar Europa Solar Power Expo, scheduled to take place June 20-22, 2018 in Munich, Germany. The company will showcase its next-generation low cost conductive adhesives for stringing, shingling and back contact applications in crystalline silicon and heterojunction solar moduleThe EMS electrically conductive adhesive line features low cost products specifically formulated to meet the process and reliability criteria required for each solar module format. Materials designed for stringing and shingling are very flexible, will snap cure and fixture cells and ribbons in seconds at 150°C with enough strength to withstand module manufacturing processes.
EMS materials designed for back contact applications are very flexible and cure during the encapsulant lamination process. Materials also are available with different rheologies for different dispensing techniques: Lower viscosity (screen printing or jetting), medium viscosity (needle dispensing) and high viscosity (stencil printing). Electrically conductive adhesives are more stress absorbing than solder to withstand the rigors of thermal cycling and process at lower temperatures. EMS conductive adhesives are less than a third the cost of pure silver-filled conductive adhesives.
