We had some pretty crazy weather
a while back, during which something BIG and very airborne (at least 12 feet in the air) crashed into one of my el-cheapo no name brand solar panels
and shattered the glass. The glass has done the classic pebble style shatter of windscreen glass but oddly enough it has remained very firmly attached to the panel itself.
Now, these panels
are a temporary setup, my plan is to replace them with something of a decent quality in four years when we cast of the lines, but in the interim I am sort of missing the 140 watts that particular panel provided. I removed the panel immediately after the storm to stop it corroding and it has occurred to me that maybe I could coat it with something to keep it mostly waterproof without losing too much of the output. The best idea I have come up with so far would be some clear contact film but I wonder if anyone has some other suggestions? Some kind of paint
on clear lacquer perhaps? Resin?
