MACTAC: Cell Holding Tape

MACtac’s SOLARHOLDTM HT-1002 and HT-2002 cell holding tapes offer superior bonding strength to many surfaces, including photovoltaic cells. Applied in full-length strips or in sized pieces as dictated by specific manufacturing processes, SOLARHOLD Cell Holding Tape is used as a production aid to hold silicon cells in alignment until the ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) film melts and encapsulates the cells to prevent shifting. These transparent adhesive tapes will not bubble, blister, discolor or affect the cells' performance during the melting or evacuation processes.

SOLARHOLD HT-1002 tape is a 3.0-mil acrylic-based pressure-sensitive adhesive that utilizes a 2.0-mil PET face. HT-2002 is a 3.0-mil acrylic-based pressure-sensitive adhesive that utilizes a 2.0-mil ultra violet PET face. Both products in the SOLARHOLD line are paired with a 78# two-sided, densified kraft release liner. In addition, these quick-tack adhesives exhibit strong resistance to movement and offer good continued use under aging and extreme temperature conditions, ranging from -40 to 250°F  (-40 to 150°C).

MACtac's SOLARHOLD products are also available in a die-cut sheet format.
