  • Publication number: 20170075045
    Abstract: A solar reflective mirror includes a parting film between solar reflecting sublayers to improve optics and stability of the solar mirror. The coating stack of the solar reflector mirror is encapsulated to increase the useable life of the solar mirror, and to eliminate the need for a permanent protection overcoat. Omission of the PPO film which is electrically non-conductive makes the coating stack electrically conductive eliminating the need for a two layer encapsulant when the encapsulant is e-coated. Another feature of the invention is applying the base coat of the encapsulant over the marginal edges of the PPO film leaving a center section without coverage and adding the top coating of the encapsulant over the base coat and the uncoated area.

  • Patent number: 8790796
    Abstract: A method is provided for changing the visible light transmittance of a coated article having a functional coating having at least one anti-reflective material and at least one infrared reflective material. The anti-reflective material includes an alloying material capable of combining or alloying with the infrared reflective material. A protective coating is deposited over the functional coating to prevent or retard the diffusion of atmospheric gas and/or vapor into the functional coating. The coated article is heated to a temperature sufficient to cause at least some of the alloying material to combine with at least some of the infrared reflective material to form a substance having a different visible light transmittance than the infrared reflective material.
