Novel Adhesions Methods for Solar Cell Assemblies

Traditionally, engineers and solar cell assemblers have used liquid silicone adhesives to bond solar cells to panel substrates such as satellites, and silicones with high light transmittance to bond cover glasses to cells. Using next generation silicone technology, low outgassing silicone pressure sensitive adhesives (PSA) and thin film sheeting can serve the same purpose as liquid adhesives but eliminate long wait times for room temperature cures or additional equipment, such as ovens, required to heat accelerate the cure process. Moreover, the processing these low outgassing materials undergo allows them to be used on extraterrestrial applications like satellites as mentioned above.
