Caution to Coating or Overmolding Solar Panels

According to ANYSOLAR, coating or molding solar panels is not recommended due to possible delamination issues. Customers try to coat or mold solar panels with transparent materials, but often observe delamination at the interface between the coating or molding material and the solar panel after thermal cycling testing or after prolonged outdoor use due to UV rays. Therefore, we do not recommend coating or molding on our products. If customers need to protect the solar panel from mechanical damage, it is recommended to use a protective cover such as a transparent PC or glass-like protective cover over the solar panel as a protective cover. If you really want to coat or overmold our solar panels, please see below Application Note or reply to this post with any further questions.
