nanoShell Solar PV
The easy-to-apply, self-cleaning, hydrophobic solar panel coating...
Lasts up to 5 years – self-cleaning glass effect keeps PV clean longer, maintaining efficiency and greatly reducing the need for expensive cleaning
Improves PV efficiency in inclement weather leading to more electricity being produced.
Repels the water more quickly than non-coated hydrophilic surfaces such as the “self-cleaning” glass installed with typical PV panels
Is resistant to salty air
Reduces the growth of micro-organisms and bacteria
Prevents bird fouling and tree sap from sticking to the surface
Dust and dirt are washed away with rainwater
Can be applied in sunlight
Reduces cleaning frequency saving energy, time and cost
A nano coating with hydrophobic and self-cleaning properties for photovoltaic (PV) and solar thermal panels.The coating's self-cleaning glass effect stops dust and bird faeces from sticking to PV panels, keeping them clean, maintaining their efficiency, ensuring the maximum amount of electricity is produced.The hydrophobic properties repel water more quickly than uncoated “self-cleaning glass" as found on typical PV panels. This makes cells treated with the Solar Panel Coating more efficient during inclement weather.
