SPARC by AGC Solar is an anti-reflective coating especially developed for photovoltaics solar glass.

SPARC coating

Solar Plus anti-reflective coating (SPARC)

Type

Anti-reflective coating (single side)
Available as Solite Plus® and Solatex Plus®

 

Applications

Cover glass for photovoltaic modules
(crystalline or CIGS)
Cover glass for thermal collectors

 

 

SPARC is an anti-reflective coating especially developped for solar applications, and more particularly for photovoltaic applications.
SPARC is a single-side coating deposited on extra clear patterned glasses Solite and Solatex during the tempering process.

Being single-sided, SPARC minimizes the reflection at the glass/air interface without affecting the excellent adhesion between the glass and the interlayer used in laminating photovoltaic modules.

Being deposited online with the tempering process, it also ensures an optimal durability and an excellent aesthetics.
