Watertight and low wight material

  1. Feb 14, 2010 #1
    In my project i have solar cells we use are called B50 cells with an efficiency of 21%.

    Since the cells come in contact with water we are looking for a cover material that is first of all watertight and secondly it should influence the performance as less as possible. Last but not least the weight of the cover material should be very low.

    Requirements:
    • Watertight
    • The material should be a thermoplastic in order to seal it
    • Low mass
    • Absorb minimal fotons of 1,1 eV and higher.

    Expected results:

    A list of materials with its specifications.

    so can please any body help

    I'm guessing you don't want glass. How about a plastic like acrylic or polycarbonates?
