Abstract

Infrared (IR) shielding materials are commonly used for different applications, such as smart windows or optical filters. Infrared radiation is responsible for about 50% of the energy coming from the sun. During a hot summer or cold winter a lot of energy is needed to keep the optimal temperature inside buildings and means of transport. To reduce the heat transmission and save energy IR shielding materials can be used as coatings made of polymer composites. Graphene oxide (GO) and its reduced forms have interesting IR absorption properties and might be used as a filler in a polymer matrix for IR shielding applications. Graphene oxide can be reduced by different methods. Depending on the reduction method reduced graphene oxide (rGO) with a different content of oxygen can be obtained exhibiting different properties. In this work we propose new polymer nanocomposites with poly(vinyl alcohol) as the matrix and 0.1 wt.% addition of graphene materials with different oxygen content to be used for IR shielding applications. The results show that the properties of the graphene filler strongly influence the infrared shielding properties of the obtained nanocomposites. The best IR shielding properties were obtained for the composites where rGO with the lowest oxygen content was used.
