Paper Abstract

Materials used in medium to high temperature flat plate, evacuated tube and concentrating tube collectors and the problems associated with them are identified. The material and research needs of solar industry are presented. Polymeric and composite materials for high temperature applications, heat mirror coatings, sealants, gasketing materials, solid to solid phase change materials are some of the areas where development work is necessary.
