Engineered Conductive Materials introduced the DB-1588 low-cost (40% less than silver-filled) conductive adhesive for back-contact applications in crystalline silicon solar modules.
November 7, 2011 — Engineered Conductive Materials LLC, conductive interconnect materials supplier for photovoltaic applications, introduced the DB-1588 low-cost conductive adhesive for back-contact applications in crystalline silicon solar modules.
The material costs 40% less than ECM?s standard silver-filled adhesive.
The conductive adhesives interconnect vias or other conductors to the back contact sheet. Its stress-absorption properties increase solar module reliability in thermal cycling. Conductivity is stable in damp heat exposure.
The DB-1588 cures during encapsulant lamination and cure.
ECM provides 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.
