Hello everyone!

As you know, the energy transition and the continuous increase in the price of electricity is promoting the use of alternative sources of energy that in turn help reduce the carbon footprint.

Due to this, photovoltaic energy installations such as solar panels are gaining popularity and both individuals and companies are betting on them.

As stated in the economy section of the newspaper ABC “In a context of record prices in the electricity bill due to high gas prices, the development of renewable generation projects, is once again gaining traction with the aim of obtaining cheap and clean energy. And, among all renewable sources, solar is on the runway to experience strong growth in the construction of large photovoltaic generation plants and in self-consumption”

Because the installation of solar panels can be difficult and can take a long time, today we will tell you 6 BENEFITS that you can obtain by INSTALLING SOLAR PANELS WITH SOLAR 3M™ ACRYLIC TAPES (SAFT),  which among other things provide stability, resistance and durability to the installations.

Surely the first thing you wonder is:

WHAT IS 3M™ SOLAR ACRYLIC TAPES (SAFT)?

Well, 3M™ Solar Acrylic Tapes (SAFT) are double-sided acrylic foam tapes, which, like 3M™ VHB™, have excellent formability and are capable of compensating for gaps and bonding substrates that do not coincide in their coefficients of thermal expansion (CTE).

In addition, as well as 3M™ VHB™ acrylic tapes, 3M™ Solar Acrylic Tapes (SAFT) are perfect for permanently bonding and sealing many substrates, providing increased productivity, high strength, long-term durability, as well as improved joint aesthetics.

And as we told you, below, we will mention which are the 6 biggest BENEFITS  of using  3M™ SOLAR ACRYLIC TAPES (SAFT), as well as leaving you some images of real cases of solar panel installations, which in Fustier we have carried out:

6 BENEFITS of using 3M™ SOLAR ACRYLIC TAPES (SAFT):

  1. Less time for installation, assembly, and bonding: This is possible due to its pressure-sensitive adhesive, whose application is very fast and allows immediate handling, which helps speed up assembly.
  2. Excellent strength to replace liquid adhesives and mechanical fixings in many applications, avoiding oxidation, deformation, and leakage.
  3. Modules using 3M™ SAFT pass IEC, UL and TUV tests.
  4. Great resistance to impact, due to its high formability, which allows it to expand and contract, recovering its original shape, without affecting the joint.
  5. Cleaner and more aesthetic application.
  6. Prevents perforations in the covers, eliminating future leaks
