MACtac to Supply Adhesives for Solar Technology Manufacturing
New high-performance, pressure-sensitive adhesives developed for solar cell applications
As new uses for solar energy continue to grow, and advancements in technology require even more efficiency and durability, solar module manufacturers need assembly solutions that will increase throughput and reliability. As one of the leading global suppliers of pressure-sensitive adhesives to numerous technical industries, MACtac® Specialty Products now offers a new line of pressure-sensitive adhesive solutions designed specifically for solar cell assembly applications.
After years of research and development in the solar bonding process, MACtac—a long-time innovator and provider of customized assembly solutions—has launched five primary solar assembly products, along with additional adhesive solutions to address related needs for solar cell manufacturing.
“For years, MACtac Specialty Products has offered engineered, pressure-sensitive solutions for bonding and mounting in the electronics, medical, appliance, and automotive industries,” said Steve Dominak, business development manager, MACtac Specialty Products. “Our new line of adhesive systems was created after many years dedicated to formulating the best pressure-sensitive adhesives to meet the specific requirements of the solar industry. Our expertise in research and development was beneficial in formulating solutions for this growing market where superior adhesive performance is a necessity.”
MACtac’s line of solar products will enable manufacturers to use pressure-sensitive adhesives in the assembly of concentrating, flat and flexible solar applications, such as:
• Concentrating and flexible applications that are subject to high-ranging temperatures and environmental conditions, like withstanding dry desert heat or extreme cold
• Securing slanted, concentrated solar energy mirrors in place to heat water or direct light toward one source
• Flat solar energy for rooftop applications
• Flexible solar energy for remote locations, transportability and charging small appliances such as cell phones and travel lights
MACtac pressure-sensitive adhesives are customized for specific customer needs and applications for complete solar cell protected solutions. All of MACtac Specialty Products’ adhesive systems for solar cell assembly are manufactured in the United States.
