Protective Cover for Solar Cells?
I have a commercial solar panel that has burned out cells. I figure this is a great candidate for overhauling. I notice that the cells are protected with what appears to be clear silicon with a clear plastic covering, Tedlar or Kevlar? Anyone know where to get large quantity of silicon for large pour of covering? It would appear to me that after the cells are assembled the silicon would be poured and then the plastic cover placed on top and the some sort of rolling pin or squeegy to smooth out, this would be better than plexiglas laid over the cells, hail could hit it and not break anything.
