Centrosolar Glas Breaks New Ground with Thin Glass

Centrosolar Glas GmbH & Co. KG has developed a particularly thin solar glass for photovoltaic modules.

With solar glasses that are only 2.3 mm or 2.6 mm thick Centrosolar Glas has transferred another innovation in the area of cover glasses for photovoltaic modules and solar thermal collectors into series production.

True to the motto "less is more" the company succeeded in reducing the minimum thickness by almost 30% at the same mechanical resistance thanks to process optimization. The thin glasses currently offered exclusively by Centrosolar Glas reduce the total weight of the modules, which simplifies the assembly and saves transportation and mounting costs.
