DOW CORNING™ brand silicone ECA technology enables high-performance electrical and mechanical bonding.
Dow Corning has leveraged decades of experience in silicone technology to produce breakthroughs in electrically conductive adhesives (ECA). These metal-filled, silicone-based adhesives can help create a reliable interconnection of advanced solar cells - delivering high conductivity and flexibility, while also potentially reducing material costs. Increased durability and flexibility help improve the overall stability of the PV module under thermal stress. These adhesives use lower silver content - for greater affordability while providing high conductivity.
ECAs from Dow Corning also enable the emerging automated back-contact module assembly process - permitting automation, high throughput, and high yield.
