Sep 23 - Scientists create world's whitest paint
 

 
STORY HIGHLIGHTS

The paint has now made it into the Guinness World Records book as the whitest ever made.

The idea was to make a*paint that would reflect sunlight away from a building.

The paint reflects 98.1% of solar radiation while also emitting infrared heat.

The whitest paint in the world has been created in a lab at Purdue University, a paint so white that it could eventually reduce or even eliminate the need for air conditioning, scientists say.

Using this new paint*to cover a roof area of about 1,000 square feet could result in a cooling power of 10 kilowatts. ďThatís more powerful than the air conditioners used by most houses,Ē Ruan said.

Typical commercial white paint gets warmer rather than cooler. Paints on the market that are designed to reject heat reflect only 80% to 90% of sunlight and canít make surfaces cooler than their surroundings.

Two features make this paint ultra-white: a very high concentration of a chemical compound called barium sulfate Ė also used in photo paper and cosmetics Ė and different particle sizes of barium sulfate in the paint, scientists at Purdue*said.

Researchers at Purdue have partnered with a company to put this ultra-white paint*on the market, according to a news release.*

So, the collective minds are on saving money and not considering what it would do to the environment?

Good point. Who knows what happens when this paint washes off or degrades.


But if we're talking residual pollution I'd focus on the millions of pounds of plastic we shed off car tires just by driving around
