Arch improves solar mirrors for renewable energy industry

Post Time:Sep 11,2008Classify:Industry NewsView:141

Arch Aluminum and Glass Co., Tamarac, Fla., has developed innovative new mirror manufacturing techniques to meet the demand for lower cost and more efficient concentrator photovoltaic units in the burgeoning renewable energy industry.

The Arch parabolic mirrors optically focus sunlight onto a concentrator containing active solar cell materials that convert the intense light into electricity. The paint backing for these techniques are lead free, which allows Arch to mass produce environmentally friendly lead free mirrors capable of withstanding high temperatures, according to a Sept. 11 MarketWatch report.
