Aluminum - Radiation Heat Emissivity

Radiation heat emissivity of unoxidized, oxidized and polished aluminum.

The emissivity coefficient - ε - indicates the radiation of heat from a body according the Stefan-Boltzmann Law, compared with the radiation of heat from a ideal black body where the emissivity coefficient ε = 1.

The emissivity coefficient - ε - for some common qualities of aluminum:

The relatively low emissivity coefficient makes aluminum a suitable product for limiting the radiated heat from a body. Its by example common to use aluminum coating in rescue and survival equipment for outdoor operations.
