Temperature Management / Automotive coating system

Temperature Management

Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

The coating technology reflects infrared light and reduces the temperature of the automotive surface. The temperature management minimizes the heating of the car surface by up to 20°C, which results in less heating of the interior of the car. Savings in air conditioning translate into lower fuel consumption or longer driving range for electric cars. The sophisticated design allows a wide range of colors: from cool and dark to warm and bright. The technology combines functionality and aesthetic demands, and represents a contribution to sustainable mobility.
