Copper tape for thermal concentration Answered
Has anyone ever used copper tape to concentrate heat on an object to obtain a uniform higher temperature? I've been doing some studies in the recent past that suggest polished copper foil is a good reflector of infrared energy. It is not as good as silver, but I don't think it would go over well to use silver in any sort of oven or kiln. I used to think good ole aluminum foil was good for heat, but it turns out it is only good for stopping heat. I've thought of using the instructable on the waffle iron or make one by way of a bread toaster, but will most likely not be able to go through with it. The copper foil is the same type found at stained glass craft shops.
