Single Solar Cell

£8.00 ex VAT

A single solar cell.


A new encapsulation process is now in production using water based protective conformal coating while maintaining performance and flexibility. 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.
