Final Report - COOL-COVERINGS (Development of a novel and cost-effective range of nanotech-improved coatings to substantially improve NIR properties of the building envelope)

Project ID: 260132
Funded under: FP7-NMP

Abstract

This is the publishable summary of the COOL-COVERINGS project, which received funding under the European Commission's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). Its ultimate aim was to use nanotechnology and pigment technology to improve reflectance in the 'non-visible' spectrum of the light. For this reason, is sought to develop near-infrared coatings and tiles to reduce heating of dark-coloured surfaces on roofs and façades.

The report firstly refers to the project context and then covers the three COOL-COVERINGS developed products along with the four process steps. It closes with some concluding points.
