Noble-gas-infused neoprene closed-cell foams achieving ultra-low thermal conductivity fabrics

Closed cell foams are widely used as protective garments in extreme environments. This article studied the use of neoprene-based materials in wetsuits by developing a strategy for reducing the thermal conductivity of a flexible, closed cell polychloropene foam. The thermal conductivities of the charged and ...

Tannin/furanic foams without blowing agents and formaldehyde

The purpose of this study was to produce an environmentally friendly foam using tannins, that did not contain any formaldehyde or blowing agents. Two experimental tannin foams were compared to two conventional foams, one containing both formaldehyde and blowing agents, and the other containing only ...

Thermal conductivity improvement of composite carbon foams based on tannin-based disordered carbon matrix and graphite fillers

Composite carbon foams were prepared by mixing tannin-based resin with various graphite powders in an effort to improve the thermal conductivity relative to pristine carbon foams in order to use them as hosts for phase-change materials. It was found that using graphite powder with smaller ...

Preparation of porous mullite ceramics with low thermal conductivity 

This study analyses a mullite ceramic formed through foaming and starch consolidation of mullite powder, and how its thermal conductivity changes with porosity of the ceramic. The thermal conductivity was measured through the transient plane source (TPS) method with the TPS. As the porosity of ...

Preparation and thermal properties of UV-curable polyacrylate-gold nanocomposite foams 

The purpose of this study was to fabricate and analyze the physical properties of polyacrylate–gold nanocomposites (PGNs) with gold nanoparticles (GNPs) as their nucleation agents. The transient plane source (TPS) method was used to measure the thermal properties of the polyacrylate–gold nanocomposite foams (...
