Solar weighted hemispherical transmittance for APEC PC-9351 and -9353 glazings with and without Korad UV screen as a function of accelerated exposure in the Ci 5000 Weather-Ometer (WOM)
Grahic Jump Location
Solar weighted hemispherical transmittance for APEC PC-9351 glazing with and without Korad UV screen as a function of outdoor exposure. At each exposure-time, there are two data points (cleaned and uncleaned) for each specimen. The higher transmittance corresponds to the cleaned specimen.

Grahic Jump Location
Comparison of the normalized ratio of thermal conductance (K, W/m2⋅K) to cost per unit area (CA, $/m2) for unreinforced polymer heat exchanger materials intended for tubing. (All values normalized with respect to the value of 7622 W/K⋅$ for unreinforced Zytel42A Nylon.)
Grahic Jump Location
Comparison of the normalized ratio of long term strength (S, MPa) to cost (Cv,$/m3) for reinforced polymer heat exchanger materials intended for headers. (All values normalized with respect to 3470 N⋅m/$, the strength/cost ratio of reinforced HTN.)
