Summary

Summary: 
A Ukrainian research and development institute is looking for licensees for a nano coating amongst solar collector manufacturers. The coating absorbs 98% of light, it is eco friendly and has very good adhesive and weather resistant properties.

Description

Description: 

Ukrainian institute established in 1918 working in a field of inorganic chemistry.
Institute developed the light-absorbing nano structured composite material for the coating light absorbing area of the solar collector water heaters.
The coating is developed to maximize the efficiency of the solar light energy conversion to heat due to the high absorption coefficient of sunlight.
The coating material is extremely resistant to environmental influences so it is suitable for outdoor usage without additional protection.
Material is absolutely ecologically safe.
The institute is offering the license for nano-coating of the solar heat collectors to the companies engaged in the development and manufacturing heat collectors in a frame of a license agreement.

Advantages & innovations

Cooperation plus value: 
The light absorption coefficient of the material is 98%. The material is absolutely ecologically safe. Material is firmly fixed on the surface of the light collector due to the high adhesion coefficient and has a high resistance to environmental influence factors.

Stage of development

Cooperation stage dev stage: 
Available for demonstration

Partner sought

Cooperation area: 
Field of activity: companies engaged in development and manufacturing of the solar collectors Role of partner: manufacturing of solar collectors with nanostructured composite coating under a license agreement.
