Abstract : The light transmittance and the reflection on coefficients of polyamide, PET, and polyethylene films were determined. The 75 micrometer films absorbed the following amounts of solar light: Polyamide 0.5%, PET 0.5%, and polyethylene 0.2%. The films were recommended for use in solar water heaters.
