  • Whitest Paint new world record...

    Move over, Ermine White, Astra White, Avanti White, et al...
    Scientists at Purdue have formulated the world's whitest paint.

    Apparently it is exceptionally good at reflecting heat and maintaining a cooler surface temperature. Painted on a roof, the reduction in temperature is equivalent of 10 kw of air conditioning. It may make cars a bit more comfortable if it could be formulated for automotive applications.

    Contrast it with BMW Vantablack (world's darkest paint) to make an eye-catching police cruiser or, better yet, dazzle paint.

    (but I'm sure it's terrible at hiding dust like Ermine White)
