Single Solar Cell

£8.00 ex VAT

A single solar cell.


A new encapsulation process is now in production for the single cell only, using a water based protective conformal coating. The new method involves placing on the back of the cell, over the protective coating, a double sided yellow thin foam adhesive tape that adds a degree of rigidity to the flexible cell. The customer has the option to remove one of the protective layers of yellow tape and place on a more rigid backing.
