Less heat for more design

There is always a first time for groundbreaking ideas: a black sailing boat, a house matching the color of lava or a carbon motorbike. Our solutions for solar heat management empower new design possibilities. Coatings, plastics or printing applications colored with SpectrasenseTM and Sicopal® black functional pigments keep surfaces cooler - no matter if they are black or colored.

While dark surfaces with standard black pigments intensively absorb solar energy and convert it to heat, our functional black pigments can be used to formulate systems that reflect sun radiation. Significant temperature reductions are possible while the visual impression remains unchanged.
