SCHOTT North America has unveiled Deep UV-200, a one-part, thermally activated silicone adhesive designed for applications that require high-ultraviolet, visible and near-infrared transmission, including photovoltaic and concentrating solar arrays.
SCHOTT's Deep UV-200 has been engineered to have low-gassing, low reactivity to gamma and electron radiation and thermal stability to 220 degrees C. It also bonds well to a wide variety of substrates and has a long shelf life, the company says.
Application for the Deep UV-200 is performed at 80 degrees to 100 degrees C by spraying, dipping or casting. Curing is performed at 140 degrees to 180 degrees C for 12 to 24 hours, depending on the flexibility desired (elastic or rigid).
