Henkel Intros Electrically Conductive Adhesive
Electrically conductive adhesive offers strong bonding.
Irvine, CA — Henkel has developed Hysol ECCOBOND CA3556HF, a silver-filled electrically conductive adhesive designed to offer fast cure at low temperature. The material is especially suitable for high-throughput production processes and applications that dictate high peel strength, such as the assembly of photovoltaic (PV) modules, automotive sensors and membrane switches that incorporate temperature-sensitive substrates.

While solder is arguably the most common electrical interconnect material, its high temperature requirements make it impractical for certain applications. Fragile, thin, temperature-sensitive substrates are often subject to damage not only from the requisite soldering temperatures, but also from screen and stencil printing processes themselves. The new conductive adhesive resolves these issues with fast, low temperature curing.

Initially designed to address the unique requirements of the photovoltaic module assembly market, the new material has been proven for other processes, too. Its flexibility for the photovoltaic sector is well-documented, as it is suitable for both crystalline-silicon (c-Si) and thin film manufacturing. For c-Si cell production, it delivers an excellent bond between the Ag and SnPbAg coated tabs and the c-Si cells. Thin film module manufacturers seeking a low-stress, fast cure electrical interconnection of cells with ribbons have also incorporated the material into their processes with great success.

Other benefits include high peel and shear strength, stress minimization properties to compensate for CTE mismatches, fast cure for high throughput and a no-mix, one-part formula which reduces operator error and speeds processing time.
