Joint Effort to Develop New Materials for Plastic Photovoltaic Solar Panel

Quantumatica Srl, specializing in quantum optical effects and liaison with the academia R+D, has signed an agreement with a large American university for the development of a new polymer with photovoltaic properties suitable for extrusion process. Bandera Spa is a worldwide leading company, based in Italy, that specializes in the design and manufacture of complete plastic extrusion lines.
Bandera has created a Nanotechnology division with the goal to implement nanotechnology applications in the plastic-working field. It has deposited a patent for the carrying out of a multilayer film that will allow the reduction in costs of plastic solar panels.

Bandera is working on the improvement of polymer mechanical properties through the selection, modification and dispersion of nanofillers – natural nanoclays and/or synthetic nanopowders.

Quantumatica will help to implement quantum entanglement effects in order to improve the efficiency, via a larger usable spectrum of light and involve international partners interested in such innovative approach.

Bandera is looking for further agreements, in order to develop new intelligent plastic products and also to improve the production process and reduce the cost, of plastic substrates for electronic and usual photovoltaic applications.
