Durable, resource efficient coating for solar panel modules

Proprietary anti-reflective coating from DSM boosts the transmission, output and durability of solar modules. The anti-reflective coating was inspired by work in the picture framing glass industry. This reduces the amount of light reflected from the surface of the glass – thereby ensuring the highest possible transmission of light and maximizing the solar power output. The chemistry and structure of the coating are designed to withstand weather conditions ranging from harsh UV light to acid rain and extreme temperature fluctuations
