How the Biomat Creates Infrared

People often ask how the Biomat creates infrared. It does not use LEDs. It uses a material that generates infrared very efficiently, which is based on NASA technology.

In 1967, NASA developed an alumina-silica material that when heated generated a large amount of infrared. In 1982, NASA released a patent on this technology.

In 1990, using this NASA technology, Japanese researchers made a material with alumina, silica, and carbon fiber to generate infrared.

Seven years later, in 1997, Richway International, the manufacturer of the Biomat, used the Japanese material to create the Biomat.

Biomat Layers

The Biomat has 17 different layers. The 11th layer, as shown below, creates the infrared.

The material that generates the infrared is a thin metallic sheet. A heating wire is used to heat this material. High-quality sensors are used which feed back to the controller. When the material reaches the set temperature, the power is cut to the heating wire, while the infrared-generating material continues to produce infrared. This is very efficient. When power is not needed for heating, the energy is diverted to generating negative ions electrically through a different system.
