ELLSWORTH ADHESIVES: Solar Conformal Coatings

August 1, 2011

HumiSeal UV40 solar conformal coatings have been added to this company’s product line. The coatings are designed to protect photovoltaic (PV) cells, particularly concentrator photovoltaic cells (CPV). The coatings are engineered to stabilize for prolonged exposure to sunlight so that they do not discolor or degrade over time. In addition, the coatings meet SAE-J-1960 and QUV accelerated age testing. The new technology can provide multiple advantages, including being much smaller, and providing lower costs and higher efficiencies than standard PV cells.
