Honeywell Electronic Materials will release a new material that improves solar panel efficiency and power output. The new product, called Honeywell SOLARC, is a transparent coat ing material that improves the light transmittance through the glass that covers PV panels, notably increasing the PV module efficiency and power output. This coating also significantly reduces glare from the glass, allowing the PV panels to better blend with its surroundings. Having demonstrated strong durability and protection to PV glass under harsh environmental conditions, SOLARC can be used by all common types of PC modules, however it provides the most benefits to rooftop installations where space is limited and increased efficiency is critical.
