The breakthrough parabolic trough mirror is the latest high-performance addition to the GreenTree Imports range of solar mirror products.

US industry leaders in glass and mirror manufacturing, GreenTree Imports, Inc., have unveiled a next-generation parabolic trough solar mirror designed to cutting-edge specifications for faultless performance in even the most unforgiving of environments.

The breakthrough parabolic trough mirror is the latest high-performance addition to the GreenTree Imports range of solar mirror products. Along with the firm’s extensive catalogue of glass and solar-mirror products, the new parabolic trough is produced on-site at the firm’s 2.3 million square feet manufacturing facility. Its unique design is cemented in GreenTree Import’s hallmark precision detail, offering enhanced performance at reduced cost.




The new parabolic trough collectors from GreenTree Imports, Inc. are produced from low-iron float glass using an automated Bovone mirror line combined with Glasstech solar surfaces, curved steel production equipment and Intermac cutting machines. This meticulous production process ensures accurate specifications and exact cutting for each installation. A specialized Fenzi paint made for solar mirror, complete with three protective layers, is used at the end of the production process to increase solar heliostat service life in harsh environments.

Francisco, the main company spokesperson, said, “Solar energy is one of the largest growing fields and we at GreenTree Imports, Inc. truly think that it is the foundation of our future. Converting sunlight into usable energy efficiently is definitely the right direction in regard to energy production and the future of the earth and the next step forwards in this journey is the official launch of our cutting-edge parabolic trough solar mirror.”

With a desert environment life expectancy of up to 25 years, the GreenTree Imports parabolic trough is resistant to humidity, salt spray, CASS and UV and offers stability in climatic cycling. It is available in three thicknesses; 3mm, 3.2mm and 4mm.

The importance of glass in our day to day life cannot be avoided or ignored. Without the manufacturing of glass, there could have no lights to switch, as they are used from bathroom to the living room and from theatres to the social venues. Even glass manufacturing has helped us to get necessary medicines in a sage and convenient manner. There could have to TVs and other entertainment systems if glass manufacturing is not there. There will be contact lenses and spectacles without manufacturing of glass. Apart from this glass, manufacturing has played an important role in our economy.

Without glass, we could not see through our windows or inside cars, busses and trains. Without glass, shops in a town would not be able display their products in the right approach to attract customers, and this can really affect businesses a lot. Most importantly, without glass, we could not even get electricity, as its generation primarily depends on the steam or gas turbines that often require glass to get the shape. Furthermore, the agricultural sector would face real problems due to the low production of crops and other food sources. Without glass, chemists would not be able to determine the right fertilizers, and this would be detrimental to agriculture. This may be the main reason why these types of glasses are being used in trucks as well as cars or may be in other four wheelers too.

This is a big reason why glass is considered as one of the most important materials. It can really affect our economy if glass manufacturing is stopped and there will be no glass to use. Manufacturing of glass has always allowed us to live a better life. Use of glass can really generate a huge list. And, in every form, it has maintained the right flow for our economy while allowing businesses to perform better in the market.

Glass and glass products making industry is the important part of history & economy. This industry makes jobs & compensation for the workers throughout the County as well as influences the tax revenues of any County.  When proportions of the chemical elements aren’t right, glass may appear “frizzled.” Thus, understanding the chemistry, combinations, and interactions of the elements is an important part of making high quality glass.

Glass isn’t the naturally-occurring substance – generally cavemen need to wait till the volcano erupted or lightning struck till they can find a few glasses. Thus, glass today is made artificially, at times in the factories and in a private studio of the  artist with their own glass formula. Also, there are 2 essential elements that go in making glass: silica (quartz, sand, flint) and alkali potash and soda). The alkali melts silica and the two combine very easily.
