Product Description

This is one of the MOST popular methods to encapsulate solar! It’s very easy to do, and works great with our solar cells kit!


This kit contains two bottles: Sylgard 184 silicone elastomer base and Sylgard 184 silicone elastomer curing agent. You simply mix these two bottles together, wait for few minutes, and it will be ready to use. It is clear liquid, good strength, UL and Mil Spec, same as SYLGARD® 182 but with faster RT cure.


Watch this video! It shows you how to use the Sylgard to encapsulate the solar panel.

Shipping is free to $9.95 for the first item, and $5 for each additional item to continent states in the US. We ship the packages via US Postal Service Priority Mail, and we buy USPS Delivery Confirmation for all of the shipments at our own expenses. This will make sure that you receive the cells. Delivery confirmation will give us a tracking number from which you can see online that delivery has been confirmed, but no signature is required. 'Signature Required' features says exactly that, and it's different from 'Delivery Confirmation' by the Post Office.

For international orders, we are not responsible for your import duties, customs charges or other VAT's. We cannot mark your package as Gift either. And we don't know what the charges will be for each country. Do not get upset with us because your government thinks that you should pay extra. In actuality we would prefer to do business all within the United States, but we have some good customers from other countries so that's why we keep our international shipping program. We reserve the right to terminate our international shipping program at any time. Please check with your country's customs office prior to purchasing to determine what these additional costs will be.
