Looking for a Heat Conducting Transparent Material for Very Hight Application

Looking for a Heat Conducting Transparent Material for Very Hight Application

Looking for a Heat Conducting Transparent Material for Very Hight Application

(OP)
Hello,

So I am looking for a material, not necessarily a polymer, but one that can withstand around 1100 to 1500 degrees F without melting or burning.
It should conduct heat very well.
It should also be thin and flexible that could possibly be rolled up and would unroll and flatten easily.
It would also be good for it to be atleast semi transparent or fully transparent.
And this material would need to be mass produced for consumer use so it cant be like 1000s of dollars per sq ft, more like $5 or so.

Is there such a polymer that has these characteristics?

Thanks You

There are no polymers that fit your need. Mica sheets might be suitable.

Download link doesn't seem to work, but here is a direct link to the paper: http://www.geopolymer.org/fichiers_pdf/TOOLING.pdf

Doesn't look particularly transparent, though.

Of course I can. I can do anything. I can do absolutely anything. I'm an expert!
There is a homework forum hosted by engineering.com: http://www.engineering.com/AskForum/aff/32.aspx

Thanks IRstuff. I had a comma in the filename, which seems to screw up 'attachments' even though PCs and Unix usually don't mind them.

The OP's material requirements are quite steep, even without transparency! A 1000+°F flexible material for less than $5/sq.ft...

Maybe a glass fiber cloth? Probably good for 1300°F. Maybe $2/lb.

This should work: Link

Porbably worth tracking this guy down for some advice on it: Link

But seriously, I can't think of anything that will hit those properties and be low cost, although such materials probably aren't as scifi-ish as might be thought Link

Second link was dead, this should work: Link
