Plastics for solar facilities
Solar energy holds a key role among the renewable energies. Constructors require reliable and high-performing materials for increasing efficiency and longevity of their facilities. We offer plastics specifically suitable for such requirements. They will help you in development of high-performing solar facilities with a long service life. We will gladly advise you in selecting the right materials for your application.
- UV resilience permits permanent outdoor use.
- Resilience against chemical media
Typical areas of application
- Tracked operation
- Wafer production
Facility components in wafer production
Wafers go through chemical processes in production in which they are, among others, etched with aggressive acids to form a surface that can collect as much light as possible. Constructors use our chemically particularly resilient materials Polystone® PVDF and Polystone® P (PP) nature for construction of these facilities. More about Polystone® PVDF and Polystone® P (PP)

Tracked operating in solar facilities
As plain bearings in tracked operation of solar facilities, machined parts of our materials ensure precise alignment of the solar cells with the position of the sun. With their high pressure resilience and UV resilience, the plain bearings offer a very long service life. More about our machining options
Arrange technical advice
The performance and reliability of materials for solar facilities are influenced by a variety of factors. These criteria need to be considered in order to make the right choice. Examples:
- Mechanical stress
- Thermal stress
- Outer influences such as UV radiation and weather
- Constructional requirements
- Dimensions and tolerances
