A new six-page brochure from Henkel Corp., headquartered in Dusseldorf, Germany, provides detailed information on the company’s line of Loctite adhesives and sealants for manufacturing photovoltaic and concentrating solar modules, according to an Aug. 6 release. The literature, Solutions for the Solar Power Industry, offers technical data on products for elastomeric bonding and sealing, rigid bonding, and potting.

* The seven Loctite products highlighted in the brochure for elastic bonding provide high resiliency, high elongation, and good adhesion for module-to-frame, module-to-bracket, mirror reflector, and concentrator lens bonding, as well as junction box mounting, and steel bracket-to-mirror panel bonding.

* For rigid metal bonding, the literature offers data on six structural adhesives formulated to provide durable, strong bonds for frame construction and metal bracket assembly.

* For junction box potting, the brochure highlights two-component, non-corrosive silicones that adhere well to plastics, exhibit flame resistance, and provide excellent electrical insulation properties.
