Kömmerling is sharing the stand with Apollon Solar, a supplier of turnkey solar systems and the driving force behind the recently launched NICE (New Industrial Cells Encapsulation) technology for photovoltaic systems.
Commenting on the exhibition, Ernst Semar, product manager at Kömmerling, said; “Solar and photovoltaic installations are becoming ever more popular in both the commercial and domestic market place. This exhibition provides us with the opportunity to demonstrate and talk to leading manufacturers, suppliers and installers about our latest products, HelioSeal and HelioGlaze, and how they can help in ensuring an efficient and reliable installation.”
The use of HelioSeal is revolutionising the production of thin film modules for photovoltaic use. The traditional laminating process is very time consuming but the combination of this new spacer with the latest applications equipment means a thin film module can be sealed every 30 seconds. HelioSeal is impervious to water vapour and has good stability under UV light combined with good resistance to high temperatures.
Kömmerling has also identified that one of the keys to increasing the efficiency of solar panels is to improve the thermal resistance of the Flat– Plate Solar collectors located within them. In order to achieve higher levels, manufacturers of these panels need a special double glass with anti-reflective properties and a low-e coating. This is a microscopically thin, virtually invisible, metal or metallic oxide layer deposited directly onto the surface of a glass pane. The low-e coating reduces the infrared radiation from a warm pane of glass to a cooler pane resulting in a higher solar gain. Kömmerling has responded to this with the introduction of HelioGlaze, a new heat resistant sealant specifically for use in this niche market.
