Henkel Introduces New Adhesive For Crystalline Solar Module Framing


Henkel Corp. has introduced Terostat MS 500, a high-strength hot melt adhesive that offers high initial tack for immediate handling, according to the company. The patented technology is based on modified silane polymers and provides very high initial bond strength immediately after assembly, making the adhesive well suited for fully automated framing of crystalline modules.

Unlike conventional sealing systems, Terostat MS 500 achieves instant handling strength, eliminating waiting time and accelerating throughput rates, which results in substantial cost savings, the company says.

Terostat MS 500 is highly flexible over a range of temperatures from -20 degrees C to 100 degrees C. UV- and damp-heat-resistant, the adhesive is able to compensate for differing rates of thermal expansion between substrates.
