A solar panel are typically constructed of two glass plates in between the solar cells. Using AFTC SilverTape in the same thickness as the cells, protects the cells and provides resistance to moisture. Because AFTC SilverTape are a closed cell structure, this ensures that the units are 100% waterproof. For the aesthetics the glass is bonded with AFTC’s transparent SilverTapes. The panels are then bonded to an aluminium frame using the AFTC general purpose SilverTapes.
Electrical parts like junction boxes are bonded to the back of the panel in most cases using a die-cut of AFTC SilverTape.
To keep from corroding, the glass/aluminium panels is then bonded to the steel frames in a field, on a wall or rooftop using the AFTC SilverTape.
