Simms, D.L. and Hinkley, P.L., 1955. MATERIALS SUITABLE FOR CLOTHING AIRCRAFT FIRE CRASH RESCUE WORKERS PART III - THE EFFECT OF A REFLECTING OUTER GARMENT. Fire Research Notes 221
The use of a reflecting coating on the outside of a fabric has been shown to be very effective in increasing the protection against radiant heat; but it gives no extra protection against flames which transfer heat mainly by convection and which deposit soot on the aluminium surface. If the material is to be used to the limit of its protection a quick release from the clothing is essential.
