Flexible Conductive Adhesive suits photovoltaic applications.
July 16, 2012 -
Featuring rubber-like flexibility, 530-121 is designed for ribbon stringing in thin-film solar modules. Adhesive has dispensing work life greater than 48 hours, while maintaining optimized rheology for dispensing and damp heat resistance. Providing optimal conductivity and stability when cured at 150°C, material can also be cured in 2 minutes at 1,800°C. Adhesive offers conductivity stability on molybdenum and tin, tin-silver, and silver-plated ribbons.

Engineered Conductive Materials Debuts 530-121 Low-Cost Conductive Adhesive
DELAWARE, OH - Engineered Conductive Materials, a leading global supplier of conductive interconnect materials for photovoltaic applications, introduces the new 530-121 low-cost conductive adhesive designed for ribbon stringing in thin-film solar modules. The price of this material formulation is 60 percent of the cost of a pure silver-filled material and has been optimized for excellent conductivity and stability on various substrates when cured at 150°C.
The 530-121 has a dispensing work life greater than 48 hours (measured as a 25 percent increase in viscosity), while maintaining optimized rheology for dispensing and excellent damp heat resistance. Also, the material has conductivity stability on molybdenum and tin, tin-silver and silver-plated ribbons. The 530-121 features a rubber-like flexibility that is ideal for flexible photovoltaic applications with high peel strength to withstand the stresses induced in reel-to-reel manufacturing processes. This material also can be fast cured at elevated temperatures (2 minutes @ 1800C).
530-121 is the latest addition to Engineered Conductive Materials' full line of conductive stringer attach adhesives, conductive adhesives for back contact crystalline silicon, thin-film and via fill applications, as well as conductive grid inks for photovoltaic applications.
