Graco is a world leader in sealant and adhesive dispensing for solar applications.
Solar photovoltaic (PV) modules use flat panels, parabolic mirrors, Fresnel lenses and flexible thin film panels to collect and convert sunlight into electricity. Electricity generated from these sources is then converted from DC to AC for distribution and daily use.
Despite record installation rates in recent years, PV module manufacturers have realized dramatically lower prices, instigating a push toward increased efficiency and lower manufacturing costs.
Solar Manufacturing & Materials
A variety of sealants and adhesives are used in solar module manufacturing processes. Silicone adhesives and sealants provided a strong, reliable bond in applications that require flexibility and resistance to temperature extremes and moisture.
