Summary

More than 100 commercially available ceramic fiber, board, blanket, and cloth materials have been evaluated for use In high-intensity sunlight or other radiant-heat environments. The failure of these materials depends on their reflectivity, em-issivity, and light-scattering properties and cannot be predicted by their temperature rating.
