Oulu, Finland [RenewableEnergyAccess.com] Braggone has received funding from TEKES (The National Technology Agency of Finland) to commercialize the company’s nano polymer materials for worldwide commercialization. Braggone’s technology allows for custom tuning of the inorganic-organic polymer material properties to suit specific applications.
The flexible and stable materials coat or print onto substrates at greater efficiency, lower temperatures and higher yields than traditional polymers and are currently applied in solar photovoltaic (PV) panels. Details of the deal with TEKES were not disclosed.“We’ve had great success working in collaboration with chemical companies and equipment manufacturers to fine-tune and optimize the physical and application specific characteristics of these polymers,” said Dr. Yrjo Ojasaar, CEO of Braggone. “Due to that collaboration and now with the additional funding from TEKES, we are on a rapid path to commercialization, as we can deliver PV manufacturers with increased performance and reduced costs all in one turnkey solution.”
