The scope of this paper is focuses on the study of the mean life of materials (solar mirrors from parabolic - trough collectors) from the field of renewable energies, using accelerated degradation/reliability testing. This paper is focused on influence of environmental factors (temperature, humidity, UV and salt spray) at mean life of solar mirrors from parabolic - trough collectors under accelerated testing conditions. In today’s highly competitive environment, companies are pressured to shorten their development cycles, reduce development costs and produce highly reliable products. Accelerated reliability/durability tests are a very powerful tool in achieving these goals, providing the means to observe failures more rapidly under higher-stress operating conditions while accurately predicting reliability under normal operating conditions.
