HENKEL: Hot-Melt Adhesive

April 21, 2011

For fully automated framing of crystalline solar modules, this company has introduced Terostat® MS 500™, a high-strength hot-melt adhesive that can provide high initial tack for immediate handling.

The patented adhesive is based on modified silane polymers and reportedly provides very high initial bond strength immediately after assembly, making it suited for fully automated framing of crystalline modules. Unlike conventional sealing systems, the adhesive can achieve instant handling strength, eliminating waiting time and accelerating throughput rates to provide substantial cost savings.
