Colour treated glass for Photovoltaic and Thermal panel applications involves the application of highly efficient and environmentally friendly nanotechnology surface treatments optimized for PV and Thermal panels. Kromatix technology offers vast new opportunities combining full architectural design flexibility and unparalleled panel aesthetics with optimum panel performance for solar building integration.
The coloured glass is obtained by combining two different surface treatments:
The multilayered treatment is designed:
The outer treatment provides diffused reflection:
In simplified terms, the colour shade is given by the position of the reflection peaks of the reflectance curve. A good compromise has to be found, as the higher the reflectance, the lower the transmittance and the energetic performance of the solar device on which the coloured glass cover is installed.
Virtually no effect or compromise in panel performance and efficiency with Kromatix coloured glass versus standard solar glass.
