Transparent Silver Alloys
for a Sustainable World
Unlocking the Power of Deeptech
Transparent thin film materials are a key enabling technology for applications such as energy-saving windows and photovoltaics. However, existing solutions cannot meet climate change goals due to insufficient energy performance and raw material scarcities. Our breakthrough innovation is a new class of high-performance transparent materials based on precision silver alloys, which address the limitations of current solutions.
Our first precision silver alloy AlumenateTM is a replacement for silver in low-e energy saving window coatings. It is the first material providing the durability benefits of an alloy while also enhancing the optical and electrical properties of the coating, setting a new bar for simultaneously improving the embodied and operational carbon footprint of coated glass products.
Our silver alloy can be tailored to replace ITO (indium tin oxide) and reduce the amount of silver needed to enable next-generation photovoltaics. Indium is a rare earth element and global supplies are insufficient to meet photovoltaic production at the scale required to achieve the targets of the Paris Agreement.
