ADHESIVE TAPES FOR RENEWABLE ENERGIES
We have several renewable energy products, such as anti-friction adhesive tapes, tapes and products for installing solar panels, or chargers for electric vehicles.
ANTI-FRICTION ADHESIVE TAPES
The anti-friction adhesive tapes are made of transparent polyurethane with high resistance to friction and wear.
This protective tape is very useful in the wind industry and the automotive industry, as it protects the most exposed areas from erosion during friction.
The blades of wind turbines have to withstand very adverse conditions, such as rain, hail, sand, insects, sun and above all high speeds. It should be borne in mind that these move at speeds of around 160 km per hour.
This anti-abrasive protective adhesive tape is also used in the automotive industry. Especially in the case of racing vehicles such as Formula 1 or motorbike racing, where speeds exceed 300 km per hour.
High-strength, high molecular weight polyurethane tape can also be used in industry to protect areas of constant friction. For example, conveyor chains for metal or glass containers. In this way, we prevent the products from being grated along the way.
When areas exposed to friction are not fitted with protective anti-abrasion tape, their durability can be significantly reduced. The costs involved are: replacement of new parts, downtime and labour.
An optimal protection against wear and tear would be to use our transparent polyurethane adhesive tape, as it is a very resistant, adaptable and printable product.
Our anti-friction adhesive tape is available in various widths and thicknesses to suit your requirements.
TAPES AND PRODUCTS FOR THE INSTALLATION OF SOLAR PANELS
In this section we include the VHB tapes for the screwless or rivetless installation of the solar panels on the metal structure. Prior to the use of these tapes we recommend the use of P94 primer to ensure optimum adhesion of the tape.
Insulating foam tapes are also available to prevent galvanic couple caused by the interaction of dissimilar metals.
PRODUCTS FOR THE INSTALLATION OF ELECTRIC VEHICLE CHARGERS.
In addition to the above, for the installation of high power chargers for electric vehicles, we have at your disposal the Novec range of cooling fluids, and especially for this specific application, the Novec 7500 which facilitates the cooling of batteries, super chargers or high power electronics.
e-POWERTRAIN SOLUTIONS FOR ELECTRIC VEHICLE BATTERIES
We have tapes suitable for high performance applications within batteries.
Our solutions for cells, modules and packages include:
- Electrical insulation. Reliable short-circuit protection for battery cells and metal parts
