New high temperature solar absorber coatings are being developed within the European project RAISELIFE. These coatings are designed with a high solar absorptance in order to improve the efficiency of steam and molten salt tower receivers. A set of steel substrates and coatings have to be tested under realistic conditions to understand their failure mechanisms and prove their durability. A parabolic dish testing facility has been upgraded at the Plataforma Solar de Almería in order to perform thermal cycles on tubular absorber samples under concentrated solar flux profiles. The focus of the work lies on performing such accelerated aging test campaign, generate experimental data and improve test procedures.
