3M Products For Renewable Energy Manufacturing
3M™ Films Solar Mirror Film SMF1100
3M is one of the world's leading suppliers of advanced films—from materials that provide very high barriers to oxygen and moisture, to precision-coated, multilayer electronic display films that
are tuned to transmit or reflect specific wavelengths. With decades of design and manufacturing
expertise, 3M can tailor films with properties and configurations to meet your specifications for a variety of solar applications.
Low-resistance solutions for thin film photovoltaic solar applications, 3M™ Charge-Collection Tapes consist of tin-plated, deadsoft copper foil with a pressure-sensitive adhesive. The tin plating resists oxidation and corrosion and facilitates soldering to the backing. They're available in a wide range of configurations for solar applications as a charge collector or bus within thin film solar panels.
3M™ Dielectric Tapes are excellent high temperature tapes for crystalline silicon (c-Si) and thin film solar applications. Available in a wide variety of widths, they're reliable electric insulators and can be applied automatically to maximize productivity.
A world leader in adhesive technology, 3M has developed thousands of structural and non-structural bonding products in a wide range of formulations, cure times and dispensing systems. 3M™ Adhesives are optimized to meet the unique and demanding conditions of the solar industry.
For more than 30 years, industries around the world have relied on the performance of 3M™ Solar Acrylic Foam Tapes—while improving productivity, bonding strength, long-term durabilityand product appearance. These high strength tapes are ideal for a variety of solar bonding applications, including frame bonding and junction box bonding.
3M provides a wide range of tapes designed specifically for use in PV modules. Durable 3M tapes ensure reliable, long-term application for everything from cosmetic masking to cell positioning.
