3M™ Charge-Collection and Bus Tapes

3M Charge-Collection Solar Tapes consist of tin-plated copper foil with acrylic-based, pressure sensitive adhesives used in thin film solar applications requiring z-axis conductivity. These tapes can be applied at high speeds using automation equipment. Since there is no curing required (as with liquid conductive adhesives) they allow for high productivity during panel manufacturing. The 3M Bus Tape (1007N) is not z-axis conductive and it is used as a bus tape for routing charge in thin film panels.
