JEC Group have brought together the international community of composites leaders and executives in our Composites Circle as an unique networking opportunity to meet with both peers and future partners.
JEC Europe 2013 - A new fabrication process developed by ID Composite and the Saint-Brieuc Institute of Technology makes it possible to insert a solar cell in a composite material.
Using this process, it is no longer necessary to mount a solar panel on the part, thus eliminating extra weight, leaks risk and unsightly appearance.
The cells are embedded in the infusion-moulded composite parts without overthickness or design restraints because they are flexible and can be fitted on curved surfaces.
These parts including solar cells are light and strong, fully integrating the cell. Ready-to-connect wires are embedded in the composite. This process can be used for street furniture (bus shelters...), roofing or car body components.
