Adhesives for the manufacturing of photovoltaic elements
Solar cells, by design, are permanently exposed to the weather and have to deal with changing conditions such as sun, cold, rain, and snow. The materials used therefore have to be highly weather-resistant for this method of electricity generation to be economically viable.
Here, too, using the right adhesive plays a major role in the production process. Even minor quality compromises can have a negative impact that, in the worst case, may only become apparent months or years later. Many companies in this booming high-tech sector trust in KLEIBERIT adhesives for successful and sustainable results. Find out more here.
Solar cells on building facades and roofs
Adhesives are used in all kinds of smart and sustainable building technology. When it comes to photovoltaic products (i.e. solar cells), it is essential to use adhesives that have permanent resistance to weather extremes.
Solar panels are made of different layers of hyper-modern, flat, but very sensitive materials that are joined together in a FlatLamination process.
Reactive PUR hotmelts are the products of choice for such highly complex bonding requirements. Depending on the materials used and their intrinsic processing properties, tailoring the adhesive formulation to the system technology is key to ensuring an efficient production process and achieving long-lasting solar cells. Our engineers have decades of experience and will be happy to help you.
Our adhesive systems are also available in micro-emission quality.
