SkyFuel Inc., a manufacturer of high-reflectance silvered film for concentrating solar power (CSP) applications, has released ReflecTechPLUS mirror film.
According to the company, the new film retains all of the qualities found in the original ReflecTech; it is unbreakable, outdoor-weatherable, lightweight, inexpensive and self-adhesive. The new version features a transparent coating that provides surface protection against abrasion, the company adds.
The development of the abrasion-resistant coating was performed as part of a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with the U.S. Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). NREL holds the patent for ReflecTech mirror film and licenses the film exclusively to ReflecTech Inc., a subsidiary of SkyFuel.
