Task 39 - Polymeric Materials for Solar Thermal Applications

Overview

The objective of this Task is the assessment of the applicability and the cost reduction potential by using polymeric materials and polymer based novel designs of suitable solar thermal systems and to promote increased confidence in the use of these products by developing and applying appropriate methods for assessment of durability and reliability.

These goals will be achieved by either less expensive materials or less expensive manufacturing processes.
