February 25, 2011 – BUSINESS WIRE — Momentive Performance Materials has introduced a one-component silicone, TSE3822, for the frame sealing of polycrystalline solar modules.
Recently showcased at SNEC 2011 International Photovoltaic Power Generation Conference & Exhibition in China, TSE3822 can typically provide strong yet primer-less adhesion to a wide range of photovoltaic substrates, including aluminum, plastics, and glass.
More SNEC product debuts:
- Spire electroluminescence solar module tester provides advanced metrology
- Varian launches PV ion implant platform
- Applied Materials (AMAT) solar cell manufacturing releases at SNEC
Other specialty products in Momentive Performance Materials’ portfolio for solar applications are typically used for frame sealing, junction box potting and bonding and PV module encapsulation, as well as concentrator PV (CPV) technology. Other Momentive Performance Materials products featured at SNEC 2011 included:
TSE3661 – a two-component, room temperature, fast cure potting compound developed to address adhesion to many of the new plastics used in junction box manufacture today
TSE3852 – a one-component, neutral cure, tin-free adhesive that may be considered for junction box bonding and frame sealing where premium performance is required
RTV230 – a two-component, room temperature, very fast curing adhesive sealant that may be considered for junction box attach and frame seal applications where very fast room temperature cure is desired.
