BoPET - Applications - Solar, Marine and Aviation Applications

Solar, Marine and Aviation Applications

  • Metallized boPET is intended to be used for solar sails as an alternative means of propulsion for spacecraft such as Cosmos 1
  • Metallized boPET solar curtains reflect sunlight and heat away from windows.
  • Aluminized, as an inexpensive solar eclipse viewer, although care must be taken, because invisible fissures can form in the metal film, reducing its effectiveness.
  • High performance sails for sailboats and hanggliders
  • Use boPET films as the back face of the PV modules in solar panels
  • Metallized boPET as a reflector material for solar cooking stoves
  • To bridge control surface gaps on sailplanes, reducing profile drag

Famous quotes containing the word marine:

    People run away from the name subsidy. It is a subsidy. I am not afraid to call it so. It is paid for the purpose of giving a merchant marine to the whole country so that the trade of the whole country will be benefitted thereby, and the men running the ships will of course make a reasonable profit.... Unless we have a merchant marine, our navy if called upon for offensive or defensive work is going to be most defective.
    William Howard Taft (1857–1930)
