Temperature Management Coating System


The temperature management coating system is both a functional and an aesthetically attractive car paint. This technology reflects near infrared radiation and reduces the temperature of the car surface by 20 degrees centigrade which decreases the temperature inside the car. As this notably cuts down on the use of air conditioning, fuel consumption is also lower, and the reach of an electric car is further. A wide range of colours from deep colour tones to chromatic colour spaces is available for the car design.
