Formula E s.r.l. and Engineered Materials Systems, Inc. Enter Collaboration Agreement

May 07, 2014

Formula E s.r.l., a leading supplier of photovoltaic technology and automated manufacturing lines, and Engineered Materials Systems, a leading supplier of conductive interconnect materials for photovoltaic applications, have entered into an agreement for the development of electrically conductive adhesives for use on Formula E automated manufacturing lines. The companies will introduce the FE-106 Low Cost Conductive Adhesive for back contact applications in crystalline silicon solar modules at exhibits W4-510 (Formula E @ Coveme booth) and N1-110 (EMS) at the 8th SNEC Power Expo 2014, scheduled to take place May 20-22, 2014 at the Shanghai New International Expo Center in Shanghai, China.

FE-106 is the first material developed under the collaboration agreement that is designed to make contact from vias or other conductors on the solar cells to the back contact sheet. The companies used EBfoil manufactured by Coveme s.p.a.  for the back contact sheets in several repeated tests and production runs.

The adhesive is stress absorbing to withstand the rigors of thermal cycling, and features excellent conductive stability to back contact metallizations during damp heat exposure. The FE-106 conductive adhesive is designed to cure through the encapsulant lamination and cure process. This material is approximately 60 percent lower cost than standard silver filled adhesives. When linked to Formula E proprietary technology and process, it grants higher performance levels and power output from the high efficiency PV modules compared with any other conductive adhesive.

Company representatives will be available at the show to discuss Formula E photovoltaic solutions at exhibit W4 -510 (Formula E @ Coveme booth) and Engineered Materials Systems’ electrically conductive adhesives at exhibit N1-110.


Engineered Materials Systems, Inc. (EMS) technology focus is on electronic materials for semiconductor, circuit assembly, photovoltaic, printer head, camera module, disk drive and photonics assembly product lines. The company creates continual improvements that will guide its customers into the future. For more information, visit www.emsadhesives.com.


Formula E s.r.l. is an Italian company with a talented team with long and deep experience and heritage in solar industry, automation, Automated Optical Inspection, software and mechatronics for application requiring high precision and accuracy in mass production. The company creates continual improvements and developments in the equipment and process dedicated to PV modules manufacturing, providing a complete and broad variety and platform of innovative solutions solving requirements from laboratory to mass production and enabling quite different technology roadmaps in the PV industry.
