Greentech Lead America: FLEXcon, an innovator in adhesive
coating and laminating, said that Unconquered Sun Solar Technologies, a
manufacturer of premium lightweight photovoltaic panels, is using FLEXcon’s
adhesive solutions to develop its Solar Golf Cart Conversion Kits.
Unconquered Sun is providing golf cart distributors and
manufacturers with an energy efficient alternative that increases cart run time
by 30 percent and increases battery life by up to 50 percent. The kit converts
used and new golf carts into energy efficient vehicles and comes with a gauge
to show distance traveled, how many hours of battery are left and how much
energy is being generated.
Unconquered Sun is using FLEXcon’s backsheet for the solar
panels, as well as the custom foam tape used in the manufacture and
installation of the solar panels onto the golf carts.
FLEXcon supplied a double-coated black foam tape to
adhere the golf cart frame to the glass module, and adhere the black skirt around
the module. FLEXcon delivered FLEXmount DFPEF 32 Black V-778 200 POLY C2S, a
custom tape solution that is slit to a specific size. FLEXcon also provides its
FLEXcon multiGUARD KPE W12 photovoltaic backsheet for the panels.
“Golf cart distributors and manufacturers need to
consider offering golf cart options that help reduce energy usage and operating
costs. Having worked with FLEXcon before, we knew they would be the perfect
partner to help us bring this exciting product to market. FLEXcon’s ability to
rapidly develop custom solutions allowed us to deliver golf cart conversion
kits, ahead of our competitors,” said Sean Moore, CEO of Unconquered Sun
