Description

Endurex has been engaged in a feasibility study to determine practicality of utilizing Endurex ion plated films to serve as anti-reflective and/or protective encapsulants for solar cell arrays. It has been demonstrated that thin films of oxide materials between 1000 and 2000 A thick will protect a photovoltaic device from degradation in salt spray. Additionally, transmissively data accumulated on Endurex coatings show that the anti-reflective (AR) properties of this film are equal to any achieved by more widely used processes. The Endurex ion plating process is capable of being scaled up to meet 1986 throughput goals at a cost which ... continued below

Endurex has been engaged in a feasibility study to determine practicality of utilizing Endurex ion plated films to serve as anti-reflective and/or protective encapsulants for solar cell arrays.

The Endurex ion plating process is capable of being scaled up to meet 1986 throughput goals at a cost which is in line with 1986 cost goals. An additional benefit that may be realized by the utilization of ion plating is that it is an effluent free process utilizing no wet chemistry.
