Ellsworth Adhesives Adds HumiSeal UV40-Solar Products




GERMANTOWN, WI – July, 2011 – Ellsworth Adhesives announced today it has added HumiSeal UV40-Solar conformal coatings to its product line. HumiSeal is an industry leading manufacturer of Acrylic, Polyurethane, Epoxy, Silicone, and UV Cure Conformal Coatings, offering a complete line of certified products in the industry. 


HumiSeal UV40-Solar conformal coatings are designed to protect photo-voltaic cells, particularly photovoltaic cell types known as CPV (Concentrator Photo Voltaic) cells.  UV40-Solar is specifically formulated to serve the solar industry and is ideal for photovoltaic (PV) applications. 


UV-40 Solar is engineered to stabilize the coating for prolonged exposure to sunlight so that it does not discolor or degrade over time, in addition it meets SAE-J-1960 and QUV accelerated age testing.  The new technology provides significant advantages including being much smaller, and providing lower cost and higher efficiencies than standard PV cells.
