The project

Suntex, a solar textile dedicated to outdoor surfaces

Designed by Pauline van Dongen, in partnership with Tentech BV, this demonstrator combines the properties of textile with the energy harvesting potential of ASCA® solutions.

On each panel, 16 ASCA® modules are integrated within the textile.

Suntex has the ability to make buildings more energy efficient and brings completely new aesthetic qualities such as color, transparency and texture.

A textile to cover facades and windows

Suntex is a durable, water-resistant textile made from recycled polymer yarns.

It could therefore be used as a cladding material to clad facades for new and renovated buildings. It could also be applied to glazing to provide solar protection.

The combination of recycled polymers with OPV ASCA® technology creates an innovative and elegant textile. It is easy to imagine this textile deployed on the walls and facades of the buildings around us.
