CHARGE COLLECTION

Charge collection

Charge collection - 2nd generation solar module

Our self-adhesive charge collection tape is a fast and reliable method to electrically interconnect thin film solar cells. For rigid or flexible panels and all common cell technologies.

tesa® 60860 – Self-adhesive charge collection tape

  • Tin-plated copper backing with electrically conductive adhesive (ECA)
  • ​High durability, low electrical resistance
  • Available in roll format for automated application
LEAD FOIL INSULATION

Lead foil insulation

Lead foil insulation - 2nd generation solar module

Self-adhesive PET tapes are the ideal choice for lead foil bonding and insulation, especially when running across the cells. Choose from single- or double-coated tapes at different backing thicknesses.

tesa® 68575 - Double-sided PET tape

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

RIBBON BLACKOUT

Ribbon blackout

Ribbon black-out - 2nd generation solar module

Black single-coated PET tape to permanently cover metal ribbons for aesthetic or electrical insulations purposes on the side of the module that receives sunlight.

tesa® 51982 – Single-sided black PET tape

  • Thin and flexible design
  • UV and temperature resistant​

BACK RAIL FIXATION

Back rail bonding and fixation

Back rail fixation - 2nd generation solar module

Back rails are used for PV power plants as part of the mounting system. They are bonded to the reverse side of the module using adhesive tape or liquid adhesive. Our adhesive tapes offer a fast application process and can be used as firm spacers in combination with liquid adhesives or as a full bonding solution. 

tesa® ACXplus 7078 - Acrylic foam tape

  • High immediate adhesion without curing time
  • Stress dissipation properties
  • High bonding strength and highly durable

CABLE FIXATION

Cable fixation

Cable fixation - 2nd generation solar module

Our single-sided tapes are ideal for securing photovoltaic cables safely during shipment and installation.

tesa® 64283 single-sided strapping tape

  • Efficient tape application process
  • ​High immediate adhesion on a wide range of substrates
  • Easy removal after oversea container shipment 

HOLE COVERING

Hole covering during lamination

Hole covering - 2nd generation solar module

For masking holes in the backsheet during the lamination process, our single coated products offer high temperature resistance and great removability.

tesa® 50600 PET tape with silicone adhesive

  • Bonds to almost all types of back sheets
  • ​220 °C temperature resistance
  • Excellent removability after lamination

JUNCTION BOX FIXATION

Junction box fixation

Junction box fixation - 2nd 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
