Scientists develop textile materials from plastic cooling

Scientists at Stanford University have developed a low-cost plastic material can become the basis for clothing, keep Man is cool in hot climates. These fabrics, according to the researchers, could become the basis for human clothing keep cool feeling in hot climate without air conditioning, making the wearer feel cooler to nearly 4o Fahrenheit.

To develop textile materials cooling, Stanford scientists have mixed nanotechnology, photonics and chemistry to produce polyethylene, the material allows heat radiation, air and water vapor pass through, and dim opaque to visible light.

Materials for cooling by evaporation of sweat through the material, which makes the fabric normally. But given fabric cooling mechanism revolutionary, allowing body heat emitted as infrared radiation passing through the plastic material.
