Sunshine thermal insulation finishing



The distribution of body heat, radiation to the most, so try to reduce the distribution of insulation is the best. For example, the incorporation of aluminum metal particles in the coating resin can enhance the reflection of radiation and provide a better thermal insulation effect. The addition of ceramic particles or carbon particles to the coating resin also enhances the reflection, preventing the radiation (such as UV rays) from being incident on the outside, thereby preventing the heat energy from radiating out and enhancing the heat preservation effect. Some ceramic particles can also absorb the heat emitted by the human body, and then emit far infrared, so that insulation is further strengthened. However, this performance can not fully meet the light and warm winter sportswear requirements, is still a negative insulation fabric. Active Insulation Fabric There are electrothermal fabrics that use batteries and film-shaped heating elements to convert electric energy into thermal energy, chemical reaction heating fabrics that use materials such as iron powder to be oxidized by the oxygen in the air and generate heat, but they have problems such as inconvenience of carrying and durability .

The use of solar collectors, the selective absorption of solar energy, and then gradually released, you can permanently use solar energy to heat. Materials that selectively absorb solar energy include zirconium carbide (ZrC). In fact, it has been found that the carbides of Group IV transition metals of the periodic table all have the property of absorbing and converting high-energy radiation of 0.6 eV or more into heat energy when irradiated with light and radiation having an energy of less than 0.6 eV Reflections are not absorbed.
