Anti-Reflective Coatings for Solar Applications
Brisbane Materials patented technology creates a porous film of graded refractive index silica from a liquid precursor at room temperature and pressure. The coating is chemically bonded to the glass surface for optimum durability and life. Brisbane Materials coatings have more than 2.5 years of testing in a high-suns accelerated environment (equivalent to >20 years in the field), and have met all the requirements for a solar AR coating including those embedded in IEC61215. Industry-leading solar customers have evaluated Brisbane Materials AR coatings and found them to be the highest performing and most cost effective solutions available today. Brisbane Materials also has an anti-soiling materials technology for super-hydrophilic, photo-catalytic coatings alone, or in combination with anti-reflective coatings.
Brisbane Materials competitive advantage derives from its ability to produce the highest performing AR coating – 3% efficiency improvement as confirmed by leading solar module companies – at the lowest cost in the industry. Brisbane Materials AR coatings also can be tailored to the substrate, or modified to produce the desired spectral performance for the application.
