Preliminary results for LDEF/HEPP thermal control samplesSixty-five one inch by twelve inch strips of Kapton coated with various black paints, clear coatings, and thin film oxides were placed at three locations on the Long Duration Exposure Facility. Two sets were flown in the ram direction on top of the MLI blanket of the Cascade Variable Conductance Heat Pipe Experiment. Two other sets were flown on top of the MLI blanket of the Low Temperature Heat Pipe Experiment perpendicular to the ram direction. The last thirteen samples were taped to the perimeter of the HEPP power tray on the space end of the satellite. The solar absorptance and normal emittance measurements made on the 52 remaining samples are presented, as well as data on the above mentioned samples.
