Germany-based KREMPEL has extended the range of available colors for its Akasol PV backsheet. In addition to the standard colors of white and black, the company now offers a terracotta-red and transparent design.
The new terracotta-red allows manufacturers of solar units to create ideal visual matches for traditional roofs or the shingle roofs of historical buildings, according to KREMPEL. This type of design is predominant in southern Germany and several southern countries of Europe.
The transparent variant of PV backsheet is highly suitable for modern buildings with flat roofs as well as for shade-providing constructional superstructures, or for roof- or faÃ§ade-integrated solar modules. Typical applications include schools, sports stadiums, carports and greenhouses, KREMPEL says.
