Application of Nanometer Metal Oxides in Infrared Ray Shielding Transparent Thin Film
Water-based infrared ray shielding coating, that is, nanometer metal oxide is added to the water-based paint, which has anti-IR features without affecting the transparency of the paint. In this paper, the nanometer oxides are prepared by sol-gel method, added into polypropylene sour. In order to improve the infrared ray shielding of the thin film, two kinds of nanometer oxides are added into the polypropylene sour with different volume ratios, the shielding performance of the paint is studied. Experimental results show: in the 8000 ~ 4000cm-1 range, the transmittances of infrared ray is 30% to 75%; in 4000 ~ 400cm-1 range, transmittances decrease significantly; 3% ZnO, 3% Fe2O3, 3% Y2O3, 2% Al2O3 are the best mass ratio of every single nanometer oxide; the infrared shielding rate of Fe2O3 and Y2O3 mixture with the volume ratio of 1 to 4 is better than Fe2O3 and Y2O3 single.
