ARMOR launches production of flexible photovoltaic films

After six years of technological partnership with major names in the global chemical industry and an investment of €40million, ARMOR is ready to launch industrial production of a new generation of photovoltaic material. ASCA is a 3rd generation ‘low-carbon’ material that is said to pave the way for an array of industrial applications.

ARMOR has achieved this innovation thanks to its expertise in the coating of thermal transfer ribbons for bar-code printing. Through its knowledge of this manufacturing process, producing over a billion m2/year, ARMOR has managed to make the necessary adaptations to mass-produce a competitive, flexible, organic photovoltaic film.

To ensure the success of the project, ARMOR has developed partnerships with leading centres for research and industry in the world. The company has also brought on board many world experts in electronic materials and new energy technologies, as well as experts in coating and encapsulation processes.

This innovation results in an energy efficient manufacturing process which does not use silicon or any rare or toxic resources. ASCA is also claimed to have the advantage of being fully recyclable, demonstrating ARMOR’s attention to the entire life cycle of its products.
