Solar Solutions Photovoltaic Modules Framing Aluminum frames and back bars add structural strength to the photovoltaic module. They protect the glass edge and the delicate interiors as well as provide the means for installation. In addition to defending against moisture and environmental attack, durable and reliable sealants provide long-term bonding and a degree of protection against mechanical shock. Sika’s fast curing structural adhesives and sealants not only carry out these essential functions, but also open up new design opportunities where reduced frame materials or larger module...

Solar Solutions Junction Box Potting and Sealing Flexible Thin Film On electrical systems that are exposed to environmental conditions, protection of the electrical connections is vital. A junction box sealant must exclude moisture, be ame retardant, and also be a good insulator. While it is essential that thoroughly proven and reliable systems are used for encapsulation and sealing, the materials must also be optimised for the different stages of the manufacturing process. Flexible thin lm system technology is becoming more established amongst the other photovoltaic systems. As it is a...

Solar Solutions Building Integrated Photovoltaics Building Integrated Photovoltaic (BIPV) is an area where architectural design meets ecological responsibility. A BIPV facade or rooftop can improve a building’s energy consumption by providing both power and shade. There is also the challenge of getting the right balance between architectural appeal, optimal energy conversion and building functionality. Sika can call upon years of experience with facade and insulating glass design to help nalize a planned solution for solar integrated design. Sika Facade System brochures and the Sika website...

Solar Solutions Solar Thermal Collectors The bonding technology is ideal for the automated production of at collectors and translates to enhanced product quality and cost savings during the design and production phase. The simplied methods mean that the cover glass can be bonded directly to the frame or tray of the collector, thus avoiding the need for additional proles, frames and dry gaskets. The process can also be entirely automated so that, together with the lower component count, substantial cost savings can be realized. The approved and tested products ensure that vital joints are...

Solar Solutions Concentrating Solar Power Concentrating Solar Power plants require failure-proof components to ensure continuous power production and a safe return on investment. As a result, the adhesive to bond the mirror xation to the mirror must show a high longevity and provide a scalable solution. These factors together with the harsh environment of the reectors demand the use of proven systems. The variety of xation systems vary considerably, therefore Sika is providing an established range of adhesives and a comprehensive engineering support department to lead customers to the...
