What is emissivity of Arctic silver 5?
Hello, I want to measure the temperature drop on arctic silver 5 with an IR thermometer. For this to be accurate, the emissivity of the material must be known. What is the emissivity of this material?
Is this a school project or something?
If the Artic Silver coorporation doesn't have this information directly available what makes you think anyone here does?
Surely you should have gone straight to the horses mouth.
If this is a school term paper or something?
Home heating by thermal conduction would be vastly more interesting especially using black solar external tanks.
If this is just something relative to a thermal compound product comparison testing then it is totally irrelevant to cooling performance results, but you'll definitely be somewhere on the -1 side.
