Stanford researchers have developed a low cost plastic material that could become the basis for clothing, which keeps people cool in hot climates. These fabrics, according to the researchers, could become the basis for garments that keep people cool in hot climates without air conditioning, making the wearer, feel cooler by nearly four degrees Fahrenheit.

To develop their cooling textile, the Stanford researchers' blended nanotechnology, photonics and chemistry to give polyethylene, which allows thermal radiation, air and water vapour to pass right through as well is opaque to visible light.

The material cools by letting perspiration evaporate through the material, something ordinary fabrics already do. However, this fabric provides a second, revolutionary cooling mechanism, allowing heat that the body emits as infrared radiation, to pass through the plastic textile. (AR)
