  • Publication number: 20140220272
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to a heat-emitting composition coated on the surface of a heat-resistant ceramic ware and emitting heat by absorbing microwaves, which includes a heat-emitting metal oxide material and a binding material, a transfer paper for a ceramic ware including same, a far-infrared-emitting ceramic ware including same, and a method for preparing same. The heat-emitting composition coated on the surface of the ceramic ware absorbs microwaves from a microwave oven and emits heat and far-infrared light, such that food can be cooked evenly in short time by the emitted far-infrared light without burning or drying on the food surface. Further, the far-infrared-emitting ceramic ware can be used as a far-infrared-emitting medical device for fomentation. Also, because of superior heat resistance, the far-infrared-emitting ceramic ware of the present disclosure can be directly heated. Accordingly, cooking can be performed using various means such as gas stove, oven, etc.

  • Publication number: 20140191052
    Abstract: A steel rail solar radiation shield comprises a coating applied to the steel rail configured to one of block, reflect and frequency shift solar radiation from being transferred to the steel rail via particulates suspended in the coating. The applied coating is configured to be self-cleaning via at least one of additional water, carbon dioxide, heat and an additional superficial sol coating configured to shed contaminates from the applied solar radiation shield coating. A solar radiation shield retains a ballast to block and reflect the solar radiation from the steel rail and have self-cleaning properties. Heat applied to an aqueous calcium to species forms a reformed solid surface. A superficial sol coating of titanium dioxide via a photo-catalysis yields ions which chemically remove common surface debris. Furthermore, a precipitated crystalline calcium sulfate hydrate bonds to the rail and produces a reformed and cleaned surface to shield the rails from solar radiation.

  • Publication number: 20140170422
    Abstract: A method for making low emissivity panels, including forming a base layer to promote a seed layer for a conductive silver layer. The base layer can be an amorphous layer or a nanocrystalline layer, which can facilitate zinc oxide seed layer growth, together with smoother surface and improved thermal stability. The base layer can include doped tin oxide, for example, tin oxide doped with Al, Ga, In, Mg, Ca, Sr, Sb, Bi, Ti, V, Y, Zr, Nb, Hf, Ta, or any combination thereof. The doped tin oxide base layer can influence the growth of (002) crystallographic orientation in zinc oxide, which in turn serves as a seed layer template for silver (111).
