GLASS FRAME DIY SOLAR PANEL FREE PV solar panel help pages ALL FREE HELP

 
 

  In my opinion, this type of Solar panel seals the best. It was made with two sheets of 1/8" thick glass.  The one sheet of glass was the backing and the solar cells were siliconed to it.  Then the other glass sheet was placed on top to form a seal.  Before I siliconed the top, I put blobs of silicone around the 1" lip for the seal, about 1/4" high, and let dry over night.  The next day I then placed  silicone all around the 1" lip on the bottom glass piece.  The blobs were used  to stop the glass from sinking all the way down and braking the solar cells

After it dried, I added more around to make sure I had a good seal.  Then what I used for the white frame, in the very last pictures shown here below,  is white j-molding or j-Chanel, what is typically used when siding a house like what is used around windows or doors.  This was siliconed on too, then when it dried I added more, this made a double seal this Solar panel is sealed real good for staying out in the rain .   The wood frame is
good but sometimes hard to make a water tight seal, or to keep condensation out because of the wood. 

 
On this set of solar cells I used cells that were cracked all the way across, I soldered the tab wire on the back first then I used packaging clear tape and taped the bottoms.  This made the cell stronger and helped to keep them from braking more in the soldering and diy solar panel making process .
 
 
I hope the pictures help, I put all of this together to help the DIY SOLAR PANEL BUILDER
