  • 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.
    https://www.purdue.edu/newsroom/rele...iterally..html

    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)
