Paper Abstract

A unique approach to producing silver solar reflectors is to fire films onto substrates from metallo-organic resinates. This approach has been investigated and results are presented. The solar reflectance has been found to be a function of the type of glass and of the film thickness. Films with the optimum combination have properties that compare favorably with materials currently used. Data are presented for accelerated corrosion tests which show that films prepared by metallo-organic technology are significantly improved compared to those produced by conventional wet chemical processing.
