Concentrator Photovoltaic (CPV) System

In the design and manufacture of concentrator photovoltaic (CPV) systems, materials play as valuable a role as they do in conventional PV systems:

  • sheet and liquid adhesives
  • foil and foam tapes
  • overlay films
  • laminates
  • die-cut parts
  • vibration damping materials
  • sealants

In fact, the inclusion of electrical and hydraulic-actuated tracking systems and the incorporating of optics in assembly of modules require a wider need for materials and finished parts.

Fabrico’s materials lab enables both testing of products and the development of new materials. The facility enables testing to governing specs, not only to confirm incoming materials supplied by vendors, but also to certify that performance specs are met by materials and parts being delivered to the solar manufacturer.
