Henkel Corp.'s Terostat MS 500 is a high strength
hot melt adhesive with high initial tack for immediate handling. Terostat MS
500 is based on modified silane polymers and provides high initial bond
strength immediately after assembly, making the adhesive suited for fully automated
framing of crystalline modules. Terostat MS 500 is easy to handle
when compared to conventional adhesive tapes that require additional processing
steps like changing reels and disposing of release paper. The hot melt adhesive
provides primerless adhesion to glass, metal and plastics, and long-term
resistance to challenging weather conditions.
Terostat MS 500 is highly flexible
over a range of temperatures from -20 to 100C. UV and damp heat resistant,
this adhesive compensates for differing rates of thermal expansion between
I would hope this would contribute to the lowering of the costs of producing PV modules. Getting the cost of these modules downa dn improving the efficiencies, both electrically and for manufacturing is a good place to be for this product.
I would also think that long term stability in the field would be a good characteristic to elaborate on. I am not sure of what loads other than thermal the PV modules experience in the field but it would definitely be helpful to be able to point to the manufacturers long term studies of the adhesive performance in field conditions.
Why would the biggest connector company in the world design and build the first fully functional 3D-printed motorcycle? To show TE Connectivity's engineers what the technology can really do in making working load-bearing production parts, and free up their thinking when approaching design problems.
The enhanced ST8 includes new functionality designed to help users accelerate design speed and improve the user’s ability to leverage synchronous technology. The update offers greater flexibility in choice of platform and purchasing options, according to the company.
“How can European standards affect me, especially since I only use machines built in the US?” This is a common question, and one way to answer this is to look at how machine safety is enforced, where the information comes from, and how well you can prove you followed the regulations.
