I discovered today that thermal will work through several layers of shrink wrap. Last Fall I wrapped some shrink wrap around part of my roll cage on my Kawasaki Mule. While out on the back part of my timber today I was playing around with the Seek Reveal that I picked awhile back, and as I went past the shrink wrap I was able to see fairly clear images through  about 4 layers of it.

I know that it won't work through glass, plexiglass, or vinyl. But will work through screens as is easy to understand. Shrink wrap is a new one!

Infared waves travel through thin plastic.

There is a ton of literature available describing thermal cameras in preventive maintenance industrial, and in scientific applications.
Spending a little time reading those will easily triple the usefulness of your gear.

Take a look at thermalradar.com



They have a product that sweeps a Tau 360 and stitches the image together.  The Tau is protected by a thin plastic cylinder, very little loss in sensitivity as far as I can tell from playing with one.
