MODULE BONDING

Module bonding

Module bonding - 3rd generation solar module

Next generation solar cell technology enables new integrated solar products. Self-adhesive tapes are the perfect choice to easily integrate thin, ultralight solar modules into components such as wearables, vehicles or building elements. Our bonding tape assortment features products for many requirements. We offer ultrathin, high adhesion, gap filling, highly durable, or optically clear tapes. Ask our experts to find the right product for your needs.

tesa® 4965 - Double-sided PET tape

  • High adhesion to a wide range of substrates
  • 100 °C longterm temperature resistance
  • Weathering resistant

BARRIER FILM LAMINATION

Barrier film lamination

Barrier film lamination - 3rd generation solar module

New generation solar cells are often sensitive to water and require a moisture barrier. For small size solar applications in wearables or sensors, self-adhesive barrier products can be the ideal choice for use with high barrier back sheets. Thin, easy to use, no heat required for curing and compatible with sensitive coatings.

tesa® 61533 – Moisture blocking adhesive tape

  • 50 µm opaque self-adhesive layer 
  • ​Moisture blocking function in XY direction
  • Good compatibility to coatings like ITO
LAYER LAMINATION

Transparent layer lamination

Layer lamination - 3rd generation solar module

New generation solar products for integration in wearables or consumer electronics are often multi-layer laminated. Choose from a range of optically clear lamination when your design requires bonding of transparent layers. They are thin, easy to use, do not require heat for curing and are compatible to sensitive substrates.

tesa® 61563 – Moisture control tape 

  • 50 µm optical clear self-adhesive layer
  • Moisture control due to low WVTR ​
  • Good compatibility to coatings like ITO
PROTECTIVE INTERLAYER

Protective interlayer

Temporary protection interlayer - 3rd generation solar module

We see a multitude of solar module designs. Depending on the materials used, the process or the solar product integration, the semi-finished product may require an additional temporary or permanent layer. Such interlayer can help mechanically protect the surface, prevent contact with aggressive substances, or enable the use of bonding adhesives.  

tesa® 50680 – Single-sided PET tape

  • Transparent PET backing
  • Non-acrylic adhesive, reducing risk of cell corrosion
  • ​High bonding strength on a wide range of substrates

CHARGE COLLECTION

Charge collection

Charge collection - 3rd generation solar module

How can one best interconnect flexible thin film solar cells to modules? Our self-adhesive charge collection tape combines the bonding and the electrical connection in one product. It is easy-to-use, withstands the lamination process and does not require heat or curing time.

tesa® 60860 - Self adhesive charge collection tape

  • Tin-plated copper backing
  • Electrically conductive adhesive
  • Low resistance, high durability
LEAD FOIL INSULATION

Lead foil insulation

Lead foil insulation - 3rd generation solar module

Many module designs require lead foils connecting the bus bar with the junction box. If the lead foil runs across the cells, it needs to be insulated. Our double coated PET tapes offer both a bonding and an insulating function enabling an efficient production process.

tesa® 4972 - Double-sided PET tape

  • Very thin product design with good dielectrical strength
  • ​Durable, high quality adhesive system
  • Enables a trouble-free application process

JUNCTION BOX FIXATION

Junction box fixation

Junction box fixation - 3rd generation solar module

For temporary bonding of the junction box in combination with liquid adhesives. In addition to the spacer function, our adhesive tapes provide fast initial bonding and help implement a reliable and efficient production process.

tesa® 62510 - Double-sided PE foam tape

  • 1 mm total thickness
  • High immediate bonding strength
  • ​Good dispensing and die-cutting properties

TRANSPORT PROTECTION

Transport protection

Transport surface protection - 3rd generation solar module

Protect the sunny side of your module from damage during the installation process. Our self-adhesive surface protection products protect your modules on the construction site and are easy to remove.

tesa® 4848 - Transparent surface protection tape

  • Thin, transparent PE film
  • ​Low peel adhesion
  • Easy to remove
