Engineered Conductive Materials’ Chief Technical Officer to Discuss New ECA Technology at the MWT Back Contact Workshop in Amsterdam

Nov 02, 2012

 Rich Wells

 Engineered Conductive Materials, a leading global supplier of conductive interconnect materials for photovoltaic applications, announces that Rich Wells will present “Conductive Adhesives for Back Contact Solar Modules” during the upcoming MWT Workshop, scheduled to take place November 20-21, 2012 at the Nemo Center in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

Electrically conductive adhesives are used to make the interconnection between solar cells and back contact sheets in back contact solar modules. These materials must be extremely flexible to absorb stresses during thermal cycling, make stable interconnection to OSP treated copper contacts, cure during the lamination of the encapsulant and not gel before pressure is applied during lamination. Also, with increasing silver prices the cost of electrically-conductive adhesives (ECAs) needed to be reduced. Cost reduction of ECAs is essential to ensuring that this emerging solar technology is cost competitive. This presentation will discuss how new ECA technology from ECM provides a lower cost solution without compromising performance. 

Rich joined EMS in 1999 as the EMS Technical Director. Since then, he has become Chief Technical Officer of both ECM and EMS, while also supporting the EMS-Far East Operations. Rich has several patents for the development of materials used in the inkjet industry, and he currently leads the efforts in developing conductive adhesives and inks for the solar industry. Rich completed his undergraduate work in chemistry at Anderson University and earned a MS in Polymer Science from the University of Akron. 


Engineered Conductive Materials (ECM) is a product line of Engineered Materials Systems, Inc. (EMS). ECM’s technology focus is electronic circuit fabrication and solar cell interconnection that compliments EMS’s circuit assembly product line. The company creates continual improvements that will guide its customers into the future. For more information, visit www.conductives.com.
