Almeco specializes in high-tech coatings that convert sunlight into heat energy – in an efficient, reliable, and environmentally friendly manner.
The company combines the coating expertise of TiNOX, the inventor of highly selective absorbers, with that of the Almeco Group, which has been manufacturing aluminum mirror layers for more than 50 years.
Absorbers are the part of solar thermal collectors that "capture" solar energy. They absorb the energy in sunlight and convert it into heat.
Almeco's highly selective absorbers make use of more than 90 percent of incident sunlight.
After all, they absorb 95 percent of the sunlight, but only lose four percent through heat radiation ...
