Alubond u.s.a. FR Aluminium Composite Panels which carries the Warrington Fire Research U.K. certificates of BS 476:Part 6: 1989 and BS 476: Part 7 : 1997 has proved its fire rating qualities by withstanding one of the biggest fires seen in the Middle East on 9 th September 2005. Oasis Center a very popular shopping mall was burnt to ashes with an estimated damages of over 300 Million USD. Onlookers stated that the building was like a volcano normally seen in the movies. Amidst all the fire and ruins there was one product Alubond FR which stood tall and what seemed like a miracle came out of the fire literally unscathed and without damage. This perhaps was a major factor in saving lives of the hundreds of people working in the Mall. There were zero casualties as per the reports!

Photovoltaic (PV) devices have been in existence for several years and the electricity generated by them has been costly in comparison to conventional energy. This problem has been compounded by the shortage of solar grade Silicon which has become expensive.

A solution to this problem was found by developing specialized solar PV reflectors which enable the solar radiation to be concentrated onto a smaller geometric area of Silicon. Using concentrator technology requires a significantly smaller area of costly Silicon while still producing the desired level of power.

The Alubond PV Booster Mirror is a innovative patented technology which reflects the Sun’s radiation and concentrates it to the silicon wafer channeling it onto a PV Panel which increases their electrical output, while protecting it from the burnout effect which is a serious and frequent issue with PV panel concentrators that end up reducing the life of the device.

Alubond PV Booster Mirror provides cumulative effect on the photovoltaic panel which will enhance the power output without comprising the durability of the PV Panel.

 
Alubond UV Protection

Alubond PV Booster Mirror is a reflective metal mirror for photovoltaic (PV) devices which increases the electrical output of the PV panel and cuts out the UV range of radiations in the solar spectrum that cause panel ageing and overheating as shown in figure 1 & 2.

The new surface maintains high uniform reflectivity at visible and NIR wavelength.
 
 
Alubond PVBooster Mirror Applications
 
 
 
Hydrophilic Effect
 
Alubond PV Booster Mirror have special innovative coating which uses Hydrophilic Principle in which the physical property of a molecule repels from a mass of water. This was observed when water was placed on the Alubond PV Booster Mirror, water did not form droplets but instead fully wets the mirrors to have self cleaning effects.

To study the effect of this aspect on solar system performance, samples were mounted on a rack outside on a clear night. The next morning, observations were made. As shown in the picture, Alubond PV Booster Mirror hydrophilic samples appeared to be visually clear.
 
 
 
Alubond Solar Collector Mirror


Alubond Solar Collector Mirror (ASCM) is a result of pioneering research in metal composite technology. Alubond USA brings this innovation to CSP and CPV systems that is superior to the conventional glass mirror technology being currently used which is heavy, expensive and highly breakable.

The ASCM is a unique worldwide patented composite panel, sandwiching a high durable exterior grade core between two layers of metal skin. the ASCM is light weight, features phenomenal flatness which retains its shape and comes with low maintenance. This translates in to easier handling, packaging and shipping.

The ASCM requires minimum support structure assembly thereby maximizing ease of installation and fabrication. This results in cost saving in assembly of solar units.

ASCM is designed to provide high reflectivity along with rigidity to take and retain parabolic shapes. ASCM’s have high reflectance ranging from 91% to 95%, strong weather and corrosion resistance, longevity and adhesion properties that provide an advanced alternative to the glass mirror technology.
