Chinese engineers have created a new type of thermal insulation material
If you believe what the Chinese media report, it turns out that the Chinese sample of thermal insulation material
is the best in the world, it is essentially a breakthrough technology. The material
parameters are such that it can retain heat in a closed volume for a long time, both at very high temperatures and at low temperatures. It is possible on its basis to make bags refrigerators, the principle of which is very simple. In a special box of new thermal insulation material
put ice and products that need to be stored in the cold and sealed. In this form, the products will be stored for a long time. Apparently skilled Chinese engineers will soon flood the world with new portable refrigerators. Developments of this type are engaged in the Chinese Institute of nanotechnology and nanobionics of the Academy of Sciences of China, is this unique laboratory in Suzhou, Prov. Jiangsu.
Previously, microfibre and Swan`s down were used to isolate from high and low temperatures. Now comes a different era, the era of new technologies. A new generation of thermal insulation fibre has already been invented. The idea is described in more detail in the American scientific journal ACS Nano. As a basis for the new material
, the known strong Kevlar fiber was used, on its basis a material
with new properties was created. This is not the fiber itself in its usual form, it is an aerogel. In combination with para-aramid fiber. How not starne, fiber produced not in China but in the US, but at its base was a material
created in China. If again the US will want to cover the production of this material
, the leverage will be enough. The American firm DuPont works in the legal field of the USA.
Many laboratories are already studying the new material
, the results are more than amazing. The material
can be used without the risk of destruction in the temperature range from — 196 to +300 Celsius. If we consider the option of using at -60 degrees, cotton clothing passes heat outside the body 2.8 times better. If we compare with microfiber and holofiber, the new material
here is largely ahead, and now occupies the position of the best insulating material
on the planet.
