Engineered Conductive Materials is offering the ‘DB-1569-1’ low temperature curing conductive adhesive for use in organic photovoltaics (OPV). This material formulation has been optimised for improved conductivity and stability on various substrates when cured at 80°C or higher.
OPV laminates require low temperature processing to prevent damage. Conductive adhesives that provide correct stability for life-cycle requirements and the often flexible applications OPV is used are essential.
DB-1569-1 is more than 90% cured after 30 minutes at 80°C, with a dispensing work life greater than 48 hours (measured as a 25% increase in viscosity), while maintaining optimized rheology for dispensing and excellent damp heat resistance and conductivity stability on tin, tin-silver and silver-plated ribbons. DB-1569-1 features extreme flexibility that is ideal for flexible applications with high peel strength to withstand the stresses induced in flexible BIPV and display applications.
Low temperature organic photovoltaics (OPV) thin-film laminates.
This material also can be fast cured at elevated temperatures (1minute @ 180°C).
