QSolar Commences Volume Production of Its New, Proprietary, In-house
Manufactured UltraLight Substrate and Filing of One New Patent Application 
Calgary, Alberta CANADA, January 08, 2013 /FSC/ - QSolar Limited (QSL -
CNSX),("QSolar" or the "Corporation") is pleased to announce that, having
completed the development of a new substrate, for use in its QLiteX solar panel
manufacturing process, it has now commenced full scale manufacturing in its
Shanghai manufacturing facilities integrating and utilizing the new ultra-light
substrate. In conjunction with this development, QSolar has filed a new patent
The Corporation has commenced manufacturing of the new substrate and shipped its
newer version of QLiteX to customers. This development will assist the
Corporation in further controlling its product costs, improve quality control,
have fully integrated manufacturing of the full production cycle, and have much
greater flexibility in the design and introduction of new products. 
QSolar continues to do in-house research and provide ongoing development to
constantly improve its suite of products. Conventional solar panel
manufacturing, unlike QSolar, uses glass as a substrate and encapsulates the
solar cells using EVA and TPT film in capital intense and power hungry
laminators. The lamination process and materials has not changed significantly
in this sector for many years. QSolar products feature the following advantages
to glass lamination manufacturing: 
1. QLiteX solar panels are nearly half the weight of conventional solar panels; 
2. QLiteX solar panels are non-metalic frameless design which does trap dust,
particles and is not susceptible to corrosion and pitting in contrast to
conventional solar panels; 
3. QLiteX being nearly unbreakable in contrast to conventional solar panels
utilizing glass which is susceptible to breakage on minor impact or weight load; 
4. The new ultra-light QSolar substrate incorporates air cooling ducts enhancing
efficiency in contrast to glass panels; 
5. The new QSolar substrate can be of virtually any size and any thickness or
With the new QSolar substrate, QSolar will continue to offer embedded solutions
that are of lighter weight and greater strength and that, can be colored and
custom shaped if required, providing greater flexibility in the module design.
In addition, other substrates are being tested and can be potentially embedded
utilizing our Spraytech(r) technology. 
The Corporation's patent portfolio now consists of fourteen patents and patents
pending including previously filed patents which include three for our
Spraytek(r) solar module manufacturing process, two patents for our Kruciwatt(r)
wafer manufacturing process, one patent for the ESS embedded spraying
technology, one patent for the low loss solar panel design, one patent for
QLiteX and one patent for a solar powered waste processing plant. 
The Corporation intends to continue to enhance its value and conduct ongoing
research and development based on available budgeted financial resources with
the aim of improving the existing processes and technologies and introducing new
products and applications to position QSolar at the forefront of solar
technology. QSolar continues to provide products for potential new markets that
cannot be addresses with conventional solar panels.
