3M 3007 Charge-Collection Solar Tape Tin Plated Copper Foil Tape for Solar Panel Fabrication
3M Charge-Collection Solar Tapes are made from tin-plated copper
foil with acrylic-based, pressure sensitive adhesives used in thin
film solar applications requiring z-axis conductivity. These tapes
can be applied at high speeds using automation equipment.
Since there is no curing required (as with liquid conductive
adhesives) they allow for high productivity during panel
manufacturing. The 3M Bus Tape (1007N) is not z-axis conductive and
it is used as a bus tape for routing charge in thin film panels.
3M 3007 Charge-Collection Solar Tape consists of a 1-ounce
tin-plated deadsoft copper foil backing and an electrically
conductive pressure- sensitive adhesive. This single-coated foil
|Tin-Plated Copper 1.4 mil (0.035 mm)|
|Conductive Acrylic Adhesive 0.9 mil (0.023 mm)|
|PET Release Liner 1.3 mil (0.050 mm)|
- Excellent conductivity
- Deadsoft copper with corrosion resistant tin-plating
- Excellent high-temperature adhesive shear properties
- PET release liner
3M Charge-Collection Solar Tape 3007 is available in standard and
custom widths and lengths:
- Standard widths: 4 mm (0.157"),6.35 mm (0.25"), 194 mm (7.64")
- Standard lengths: 66 m (216')
3M Charge-Collection Solar Tape 3007 is designed for use as a
charge collector or bus within a thin- film solar panel. The
adhesive was formulated to undergo the vacuum lamination process
typically used in the manufacture of solar panels.
