World’s whitest paint may eliminate air conditioners

Researchers at Purdue University claim they have developed a paint so white that it may actually eliminate the need for air conditioners.

CBN reports that this new ‘ultra-white’ paint, officially considered the whitest paint in the world by Guinness World Records, reflects back 98.1% of the solar radiation and infrared heat that causes buildings to warm up. It essentially “absorbs less heat than it emits” resulting in a cooling effect.

Lead researcher on the project, Xiulin Ruan, explained:

If you were to use this paint to cover a roof area of about 1,000 square feet, we estimate that you could get a cooling power up to 10 kilowatts. That’s more powerful than the air conditioners used by most houses.”
