Highly functional pigments for near-infrared management

Spectrasense Website Teaser

The highly innovative functional Spectrasense™ pigments deliver functionality that goes beyond the coloristic properties. Influencing the reflection and transmission at certain wavelengths with Spectrasense™ forms a basis for modern technologies, such as autonomous driving, solar heat management and laser welding.

Improving LiDAR signal response from dark colors

Traditional carbon black pigments strongly absorb near-infrared (NIR) LiDAR signals used by autonomous vehicles for navigation. Low LiDAR signal return erodes object detection capability particularly for darker colored objects that contain higher levels of carbon black. Automotive coating formulations using NIR transparent or reflective functional black pigments deliver superior signal response thereby improving object detection
