Henkel says its Aquence Co-Cure technology has been selected for use by GreenVolts Inc., a provider of an integrated concentrated PV (CPV) system, for protection against corrosion and UV damage.

GreenVolts and automation technology provider ABB are the first to use the Aquence Co-Cure process for solar energy equipment. Henkel worked with GreenVolts and paint and coatings company AkzoNobel to customize a process that layers Henkel's Aquence autodeposition coatings with Akzo's powder topcoat and ‘co-cures’ them in a single oven.

This lean paint-shop process, which has been successful in the automotive industry, now provides solar components with high-quality finishes, increased durability and UV protection for 25 years, according to Henkel.
