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

Self-cleaning Weatherability Anti-microbial activity Waterproof

Manufacturer's Description

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.
