New and improved way to encase solar cells! Below, we show you how to use EVA film to protect solar cells. And, EVA is MUCH easier, cheaper and faster than using Slygard, also see below.
But, we've found an even better way to protect your solar cells and that's to use Flex Seal. You've probably seen the commercials on TV for it, and it's a great product. And it makes sealing solar cells quick and easy. If you want to make your own solar panels, you really should check out Flex Seal. And they have a "buy one get one free" special.
Tip: For solar cells, be sure to get either the clear or the white Flexseal because the black will retain more of the sun's heat and affect the performance of your panels. White will reflect more sun, while clear will let you view the cells. Your choice.
