PIT2SD polyimide tape to replace NuSil CV4-1161–5 for solar cells

When it comes to mount­ing solar pan­els, the mount­ing options may vary depend­ing on the type of sur­face the pan­el needs to be mount­ed on, and the vehi­cle or ves­sel it is being mount­ed to. The two most pop­u­lar options for this pur­pose include drilling holes and dri­ving screws on to the sur­face; and using an indus­tri­al strength, high adhe­sive tape.

Although the tech­nique of mount­ing the solar pan­el by drilling holes is effec­tive. But, at the same time, improp­er­ly sealed holes can prove to be dis­as­trous by allow­ing water to pen­e­trate. Water can destroy the insu­la­tion, uphol­stery and sheet met­al of the solar pan­el.

This leaves us with the sec­ond option of using indus­tri­al strength tapes for mount­ing. The appli­ca­tion of pres­sure sen­si­tive tapes and labels like Nusil CV4-1161–5 or CAPLINQ’s PIT2SD poly­imide tape helps in cre­at­ing a strong adhe­sive bond with­out wet­ting heat­ing or adding a cur­ing agent. The tapes used for this pur­pose are weath­er­proof and offer a very strong bond.

Nusil CV4-1161–5 is a one part, dou­ble-sided pres­sure sen­si­tive tape with 0.002” Kap­ton® lin­er in the mid­dle and a thick­ness of 0.005”. It has been wide­ly used for sev­er­al adher­ing and bond­ing appli­ca­tions with met­als, paper, glass, fab­ric, some syn­thet­ics, organ­ic rub­bers, and films includ­ing poly­ester or Kap­ton.

While its abil­i­ty to with­stand extreme tem­per­a­ture and pres­sure vari­a­tions makes it a great option. There­fore, CAPLINQ’s PIT2SD poly­imide tape is spe­cial­ly designed for improved bond­ing and stronger adhe­sion for mount­ing solar cells.

How is CAPLINQ’s PIT2SD more efficient?

PIT2SD poly­imide tape is a dou­ble-sided mount­ing tape with high-tem­per­a­ture resis­tance. The tape is designed to with­stand tem­per­a­tures as high as 260°C. Although, solar cells nev­er see these tem­per­a­tures, but their max­i­mum ambi­ent tem­per­a­ture can still be quite high.

What are the benefits of using CAPLINQ PIT2SD polyimide tape for mounting solar panels?

    • PIT2SD fea­tures 2-mil back­ing thick­ness, which offers enough strength and endurance for prop­er han­dling of solar cells.
    • The tape has a release-lin­er on one side, which enables easy appli­ca­tion. It can be applied on one side and then the release lin­er can be peeled off before mount­ing the solar cell.
    • PIT2SD poly­imide tape uses a sil­i­cone adhe­sive that helps in main­tain­ing adhe­sion in hot­ter envi­ron­ment as well.
