Abstract:
P2i, a world leader in liquid repellent nano-coating technology, has teamed up with US based new technology launch and commercialization specialist, Energy Launch Partners, to develop its unique business proposition for the solar energy sector.

New Partnership Secures Bright Future for P2i in Solar Energy

UK | Posted on February 8th, 2010

P2i's revolutionary plasma process dramatically reduces the surface energy of a material, so that when liquids come into contact with it, they form beads and simply roll off. When applied to solar cells, P2i's multi-patented technology can prevent water, frost and dirt from forming on the surface, radically improving performance. Furthermore, it is extremely durable and has the potential to extend the range of environments in which solar cell arrays can be deployed.

P2i's nanometer-thin polymer coating is applied in a vacuum chamber using a special pulsed ionised gas (plasma). It is molecularly bound to the entire product surface, which means it becomes inseparable from it and extremely durable. And, because the coating is one thousand times thinner than a human hair, it is invisible to sight or touch. And, because the application process is solvent-free and uses only tiny quantities of protective monomer, there is minimal waste and no adverse impact on the environment. In addition, P2i's highly flexible platform technology can be optimised to meet very specific functional requirements, making this a perfect fit for the complex demands of the solar energy industry.

Ross Harding, Managing Partner and Founder of Energy Launch Partners, comments: "P2i's ground-breaking technology has vast applications in the solar energy sector. Renewable energy is a growing market like no other, with constantly evolving product needs, supply chains and customer requirements. We are hugely enthusiastic about our new partnership with P2i and the opportunities it presents."

Stephen Coulson, Chief Technical Officer at P2i, said: "Following on from our recent successes in the consumer electronics market, P2i's nano-coating technology promises to have the same game-changing impact on the solar energy sector. Unrivalled in its performance enhancing characteristics and flexibility, our technology delivers clearly defined benefits and a competitive edge for manufacturers. Through our collaboration with Energy Launch Partners, we are in a strong position to maximize the success of our launch into the solar energy market."
