Scott Bader partners with OXECO for the flexible solar panel market

Adhesives, Industry News,

Scott Bader is excited to announce a partnership with chemistry technology expert OXECO, bringing together its Crestabond structural adhesives with OXECO’s primer technology to offer market leading bonding of flexible solar panels to roof structures.

The partnership offers a fast and effective way to bond lightweight flexible solar panels to roofing structures made from aluminium, galvanised and coated steel, PVC plastisol coated steel, PVC single ply membranes and composite structures across the Construction, Transport, Automotive and Leisure markets.

Scott Bader and OXECO’s joint technology provides a durable, high strength bond, significantly reducing the cost and complexity of installing lightweight flexible solar panels and improving the aesthetic appearance once installed. The bonding solution allows flexible solar panels to generate green electricity on structures where this was not previously possible due to the weight of traditional solar panels.

Flexible solar panels are up to 80% lighter when compared to traditional glass-faced solar panels and can conform to a larger range of surface curvatures. The technology also eliminates the need for mechanical fixings and therefore no holes need to be drilled into the roof, maintaining water tightness.
