Italy's Bandera Spa has created a multilayer (up to 12) film that will allow a reduction in costs of plastic solar panels. This will create an alternative to classical glass-silicon approach and reduce the eco impact. Bandera specializes in designing and manufacturing complete plastic extrusion lines.
The Italian company has created a Nanotechnology division with the goal to implement nanotechnology applications in the plastic machinery field. Bandera is working on the improvement of polymer mechanical properties by the selection, modification and dispersion of nanofillers - natural nanoclays and/or synthetic nanopowders.
