Engineering ToolBox - Resources, Tools and Basic Information for Engineering and Design of Technical Applications! 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.
