Technology leader

First small scale HeliaFilm® production line implementing a vacuum roll-to-roll process.

Market access via B2B with global industry partners

Our business model is to supply custom-designed HeliaFilm® to partners mainly in the building industry. Together with our partners, we develop ready-to-market products for the respective market segments.

In our first pilot projects, we successfully combined our solar film with materials such as glass, concrete, and PVC membrane. 

Looking back

Heliatek was spun-off in 2006 from the Technical University of Dresden (IAPP) and the University of Ulm. Internationally renowned experts in the fields of organic optoelectronics and oligomer synthesis were combined in one team. In 2016 Heliatek was able to look back on 10 years successful company development. The opening of the worldwide first production line in 2012 enabled the serial HeliaFilm® manufacturing. As the global technology leader in the field of organic photovoltaics (OPV), we are helping to shape a sustainable solar future.
