Film photovoltaic systems exist of different cell technologies, never the less all face the same challenges in cost reduction and process optimisation.

Sika’s adhesive range enable high potentials in a reduction of installation time  as well as BIPV possibilities.

yes
Bonding mounting devices in production

Module installation with adhesive systems allows for a reduction of installation time of up to 40 %. It diminishes the risk for glass breakage and there is no need for complex buffer zones or pre-fixation devices.

Movie Backrail Bonding

yes
Bonding to racking systems on-site

Sika’s adhesive technologies enable to bond the modules to the racking system on-site with an independency from module production.

yes
Junction Box Bonding and Potting

A junction box sealant must seal tight to exclude moisture and  be flame retardant. The Sealants are also fast curing for accelerated processes.

yes
Flexible Thin Film Bonding

As a lightweight solution it is applicable for weight sensitive applications like roofing. The adhesive must be easy to use during construction and installation but at the same time be durable.
