DSM increases capacity for innovative solar coatings



Published October 23, 2012
Royal DSM announced that it is increasing the installed manufacturing capacity for KhepriCoat anti-reflective coating. The additional capacity is expected to be on stream by the end of 2012 at the Chemelot site in Geleen, the Netherlands. The need for additional coating supply is a direct result of the fast growing market for solar energy, according to the company.

KhepriCoat anti-reflective glass coating is an IP protected product, developed by the DSM Innovation Center. The coating is primarily targeted at solar applications. The coating – a thin layer with a thickness of approximately 100 – 150 nm – is applied to the cover glass of solar modules and strongly reduces the reflection of sun-light. As a result, more sun-light passes through the glass, increasing the energy output of these modules by up to 4%.
