At the 25th European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference in Valencia, Henkel will be offering adhesives and sealants for use in the automated production of solar modules.

Under its Loctite brand, Henkel has developed a two-component epoxy adhesive that cures ultra fast, resulting in high-strength, reliable bonding of even extremely thin wafer edges.

The technology also allows the adhesive to be removed easily and without residues during the cleaning process, with water at a temperature of approximately 60C.

Acetic acid, which causes problems due to its corrosivity, is thus no longer necessary to disbond the wafer from the glass plate and, as a result, the cleaning equipment can be manufactured from less costly materials with a lower level of corrosion resistance.

As a systems supplier, Henkel also offers a range of industrial cleaning products for wafer cleaning.

At the pre-cleaning stage, P3 products help to remove residues from the slicing process.

The lubricant properties of these products also make it easier to separate the individual wafers from one another.

During the main cleaning process, Henkel cleaners remove all silicon scraps, acid and adhesive residues.

Henkel’s hotmelt adhesive Terostat MS 500 is based on modified silane polymers and offers high initial bond strength directly after assembly, making it suitable for fully automated framing of crystalline modules.

Terostat MS 500 achieves instant handling strength, eliminating waiting time.

With its ease of handling, Terostat MS 500 also presents advantages over conventional fixing by means of adhesive tapes, as there is no need to perform additional steps such as changing reels or disposing of release paper.

In addition to primerless adhesion to glass, metal and plastics, Terostat MS 500 offers resistance to weathering, providing high-performance all-around sealing that ensures long solar-module life.

Henkel will also be offering the Terostat MS 642 for flexible module production, which has a new slot nozzle system to enable fully automatic flat lamination at high speed.

This product crosslinks chemically, producing a durable yet elastic bond line with high weathering and temperature resistance.

Henkel is the world market leader in state-of-the-art industrial adhesives, sealants and surface treatment products for a wide variety of engineering applications. Its leading brands for the industrial market are Loctite, Bonderite, Teroson, Aquence and Technomelt.

Strong customer focus, research and innovation, consistent quality and sustainable business practices have contributed to its record of success, as has continuous improvement in both its products and methods of manufacture.

The company applies its expertise to the entire value chain across the engineering sector. Whatever you build, manufacture, assemble or repair, its technical consultancy service will provide all the assistance and training you need to ensure you have the best product and the skill to apply to its best advantage.

Henkel brands are internationally renowned for their proven reliability and performance and the scope of the company’s product programme extends from cleaning and pre-treatment through to bonding, sealing, filling and protecting, coating and lubricating. 

Henkel is the only adhesive manufacturer to offer a comprehensive range of products that are hazard-label free. Its Loctite Health and Safety series is suitable for the lion’s share of engineering applications and includes thread lockers, thread sealants, gasketing adhesives, retaining compounds and instant adhesives.

As both the product and its method of application dictate the quality of process, Henkel also has considerable expertise in the supply of dedicated dispensing equipment that, if necessary, can be bespoke to the application. This equipment ensures the product is applied quickly, cleanly, accurately and economically.
