Industry Spotlight: Solar Energy

The equipment that is used to harness the free solar energy produced by the sun do not necessarily come cheap. In addition, most of the equipment found in the solar energy industry can be exposed to different weather elements on a daily basis. That’s why much equipment used in the industry can benefit from protective coatings that help maintain service longevity in potentially aggressive environments.

Common Applications of Thermal Spray Coatings in the Solar Niche

  • EMI/RFI shielding coatings

At A&A Coatings, we are the go-to experts for EMI/RFI shielding coatings as it is in fact one of the most sought after services here. We have developed a highly effective range of metallic coating solutions that can protect solar energy equipment against electromagnetic interference and radio frequency interference.

  • Emissivity and thermal barrier coatings

To meet the varied needs of our clients in the solar energy industry, we utilize a great array of custom-blended materials including metal alloys like metal oxides and pure metals. A&A Coatings’ thermal barrier coating solutions have also been proven to be effective in protecting solar plant equipment that are prone to corroding or wearing out.

  • Electrically conductive coatings

We fully understand that many solar plant applications are exposed to high temperatures, and that’s why we use coating materials such as molybdenum-disilicide, iron-chrome-aluminum to protect these equipment. To achieve electrical conductivity in our coatings, we developed a range of specialized conductive coatings. A&A Coatings has the capability to produce coatings with up to 100 volts per millimeter dielectric strength. You can rest assured that we are industry-leading thermal spray coating experts for premium coating solutions that provide stellar insulating properties for various solar energy components.

  • Corrosion resistant coatings

Zinc, aluminum or a mix of both offer superb galvanic protection and can effectively protect solar energy equipment from corrosion possibilities. At A&A Coatings, you can find corrosion resistant coatings that provide long-term protection; our coatings are designed to outperform paints and other conventional solutions. From oxide ceramics, cobalt-chromium alloys to nickel-chromium, we use materials that provide both wear resistance and corrosion resistance!

A&A Coatings is the One You Can Trust for Solar Energy Equipment Coatings

Now that you know that our thermal spraying services provide coating solutions that are far more superior than standard protective coatings, you can definitely count on us for all your solar energy equipment coating needs. We have for more than seven decades of experience and are able to tailor solar energy coatings for many different businesses in the solar energy niche.

What’s more, our coatings can be applied on a wide range of materials including ceramics and polymers composites. Whether you need to create specialized coatings for parts such as commutator segments, contact points, in-situ thermocouples, ground straps, flexible circuits, slip rings, static dissipative elements, heating elements, and etc., you never have to look further than A&A Coatings.
