btechcorp has released the NTP series of Z-axis electrically and thermally conductive thermoplastic film adhesives. Containing almost 1 million Z-axis nickel fibers per square centimeter, NTP films are as electrically conductive as solder and have a lower total thermal resistance than silver filled adhesives, the company says.
NTP provides solar cell to bus bar Z-axis electrical and mechanical connections and is laminated at the same time as the solar panel assembly, thus saving the extra process steps needed for soldering. High lap shear and peel strength and its very low modulus allow it to absorb much higher CTE and bending stress than solder.
