That doesn't wash: Five common myths about 'self-cleaning' coatings

One area that is being increasingly examined is that of self-cleaning coatings, substances that do exactly what they say on the tin, thus reducing maintenance and costs while maintaining performance over time. However, while the theory may be sound, the reality is (as yet) somewhat different. Here we take a look at some of the areas that need to be considered when examining the world of self-cleaning coatings.

PVinsights: As Low Efficiency Cell Inventories Skyrocketing, Suppliers Face New Reckoning

Polysilicon eked out gains earlier this year and continued on a steep downtrend after a choppy session this week as buyers worried about the prospect of downstream demand weakens due to mixed signals in the downstream demand failed to show recovery in March. Many polysilicon buyers hesitated to confirm orders as they presumed that the drop of polysilicon did not reflect the drop in the downstream accordingly. Hence, as polysilicon suppliers continued to ramp up production, the lack of orders had led the stockpiles to surge. Meanwhile, due to capacity expansion led by major mono-crystalline wafer makers, the consumption of polysilicon was rather steadier. Yet following increasing pressure from market downturn, the price for high purity polysilicon was also set to dwindle further. Following the accelerated slump of polysilicon in China, polysilicon suppliers in overseas markets also stirred price reduction. Moreover, as the fiscal quarter end approaches, many polysilicon suppliers were forced to dump unsold inventories, driving the polysilicon prices to drop at larger extent this week.
