Self Maintenance Nano Coating for Solar Panels & Glass Facades


Both the technological and economic importance of Self-Cleaning has increased considerably over the past decade. EXCEL COATINGS provides transparent Self-Clean surface coating with long-lasting effects of deodorization, sterilization, and anti-soiling purposes. Easy application by spray coating technique. A fine mist of Self-Clean can be applied on different types of surface that guarantee the maximum result.

EXCEL StayClean is an easy-to-apply, single-step application coating designed to increase the efficiency of solar panels. Through it’s anti-static properties, EXCEL StayClean prevents dust and debris build up. EXCEL StayClean is also self-cleaning given it’s hydrophilic properties, which allows unwanted particles to be easily removed with only water rather than harsh chemical cleaners. Not only do the self-cleaning properties allow for an increase in photovoltaic efficiency, but also lower maintenance costs and frequency. EXCEL StayClean is completely transparent and does not change the appearance of solar panels.

Solar PV panel performance can degrade by 20%+ without adequate cleaning. Keeping solar panel clean is challenging, but it is an essential component of any solar maintenance program. Dirty panels produce less electricity than clean panels. Prolong build-ups of the environmental pollutants not only will cause the glass to smear but will also make it extremely hard to clean, even with chemicals. Our Self-Clean coating is engineered to use the sun and rainwater to remove organic dirt and debris. As result, it increases the energy output of the solar by keeping surface clean and reduce fungus. It is one of the simplest way and cost effective method to increase rate of return by 15% or more. Multi innovated feature brings more possibilities to the solar panel industry, in R&D and industrialization.


Antistatic function – Dirt is hard to stick such as Carbon and sand etc, And it is easy to fall.

Decomposition function – The organic particles that stick to the panel surface are decomposed & It washes away the dirt in the rain, running water only. It prevents dirt of organic oils and dirt from Adhering. Cleaning dirt floated by the superhydrophilic function.

Fast-dry at room temperature – It is the immediate effect at room temperature, fast-dry after coating.

Chemical resistance up in the hard coat – Easy cleaning such as acid rain. Adhesion of the corpse of the insect and bird droppings is also easy cleaning Anti-fog – Window glass, mirror is very clear view in the super-hydrophilic effect.

High transparency and low refractive – Suppresses the interrupt and reflec-tion and depression, visible light trans-mittance preventing deterioration.

The importance of anti-fouling coatings on solar panel:

Currently, solar panels market are spreading rapidly around the world.

Solar power generation facility construction is progressing mainly Middle East that has many more than 12 hours average sunshine time in particular. However, sunshine time is long = Desert area it does not rain, Decrease in the amount of power generation by sand dirt has become a problem.

Therefore, It always have to clean Solar panel in order to maintain the power generation efficiency, If it does not clean, it becomes the current situation where the amount of power generation to 20% is reduced by sand dirt.

Like the solar panels in the photo, desert area has become easy to adhere because it does not rain, the air is dry, sand is charged. Therefore, in such environments, the Anti-Static function prevents the dust particles to settle over the surface.

The picture, proved that yellow boxed region, dust is hard to attach due to the anti-static effect on the solar panel.


Other areas of application


EXCEL COATINGS’s Self-Clean coating decomposes odour molecules caused by tobacco smoke, pets, chemicals in detergents, urine and faecal matters, VOC smells etc. Self-Clean will continuously deodorize your living space and eliminates the sources. With a constant amount of light provided, EXCEL COATINGS’s Self-Clean coating can control and prevent growth of bacteria, germ, and mold. Any harmful bacteria and germ would be killed and decomposed in this sterilized condition.

  • Hotel
  • Restaurant
  • Casino
  • Fountain, sculpture & landmark
  • Industrial facilities
  • Automobile & Transport

Among the large public populations is at risk in an enclosed space are those in public transit, underground stations or terminals, airport terminal and large passenger compartment (e.g., trains, cruise ships, and aircraft). HVAC systems in enclosed spaces my increase exposure risks caused by continued circulation of odors, biological matters, radioactive gases, fumes, or fine particles. Surface with a greater absorptivity for particles will have greater level of surface contamination. Self-Clean coating purifies and deodorize the interior environment and gives the passengers, driver a more pleasant travel experience.

  • Public transportations (bus and train)
  • Aircraft
  • Cruise ships
  • Company Cars / Rental cars
  • Healthcare

The following are some of the key promises for the significant growth of antimicrobial coatings in recent years:

They help stop the spread of pathogens that can cause disease, which is especially important in a hospital setting where many people already have weakened immune system.

They have the potential to meaning-fully lower the environmental impact of cleaning in a medical setting, where scores of different chemicals are used for a variety of purposes.

If surfaces do not need as thorough a cleaning to prevent the spread of disease, it could reduce the amount of cleaning time-and therefore, cost-necessary to maintain facilities.

Our Self-Clean hygienic coating breaks down organic matter at the molecular level and one application will last for many years providing a constant source of self-cleansing on the surface.

Architect / Engineers /General Purpose

Our Self-Clean coating is a popular choice with designers and architects in commercial roofing applications throughout the commercial & green building market, improving the way roofing systems perform by featuring a unique self-cleaning process that extends the vibrancy of the non-toxic material.

The benefits of the new coating material uses the sun’s UV radiation, along with the oxygen and water vapour present in the air, to create active oxygen ions. The active oxygen ions, in turn, decompose the organic dirt into natural components by an oxidation-reduction reaction. When it rains, the resulting decomposed material simply gets washed off without leaving streaks.”
