ANTI-REFLECTION

Super-transmission

for all wavelengths at all angles

Edgehog invisible glass technology takes a unique structural approach towards anti-reflection.

Unlike conventional anti-reflection coatings (ARC), Edgehog process do not add any foreign material to the surface of the glass, creating a robust durable cover glass substrate.

MANUFACTURING AND INSTALLATION

Edgehog's eluminar glass is an easy choice for any solar panel manufacturer and developer

01 / 
COMPATIBLE with all solar cells
02 / 
STANDARD panel assembly process
03 / 
BENEFITS any architecture and Installation

Edgehog's technology works at the outer edge of the cover glass, making it compatible with any solar cell architecture including silicon cells, thin-film cells, and multi-junction cells. 

The anti-reflection treatment is performed between the glass manufacturing and panel assembly and it can be applied at any location involved with those steps. No change in the panel assembly process is required for the eluminar glass.

Featuring super-transmission at all angles, eluminar™ glass enhances both mono- and bi-facial panels for both fixed and tracking installations. It performs exceptionally well for building-integrated photovoltaics (BIPV).
