KIBBUTZ HANITA, Israel, November 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Hanita Coatings, a leading converter of PET films and provider of energy efficiency solutions, was recently ranked as a Top Ten Innovator by emerging technology research firm Lux Research.
Lux analysts selected 10 firms from the 415 they profiled in the third quarter of 2013 whose performance points to a near-term growth opportunity. Each company gets a "Lux Take" rating to provide a bottom-line assessment of its prospects. Hanita Coatings received a firm "Positive" rating in the megatrend of Materials Revolution, scoring highly enough to make the coveted Top Ten Innovators list.
Hanita Coatings has developed a range of technological solutions for CleanTech, with an impressive cost/performance basis compared to incumbent solutions. Hanita's spectrally selective window films, ultra high barrier laminates for vacuum insulation panels and exceptional solutions for fenestration insulation were all commended by the analysts. Of particular note were Hanita's patent-pending products supporting the growth of innovative back-contact, IBC and MWT photovoltaic cell designs, enabling a massive reduction in production costs.
"We're extremely proud to be recognized as leading innovators," said Hanita's CEO Oved Shapira.
