Scientists created the world’s whitest color; Entered directly into the Guinness Book!

A team of scientists from an American university has created the world’s whitest color, which can help in the fight against global warming. The color has entered the Guinness Book of World Records as the most white color ever. The color was developed by Julien Ruan, a professor of mechanical engineering at Purdue University, and his team.

This color reflects 98.1% of sunlight and reflects infrared heat, which can cool the air around buildings. This means it can reduce the use of air conditioners. The new paint absorbs less heat than the heat emitted from the sun. Commercial white generally reflects only 80 to 90 percent of sunlight.

“Normal commercial white is warm instead of cool. Market colors designed to repel heat only reflect 80 to 90 percent of sunlight and do not cool the surface beyond their surroundings, ”Purdue University said in a statement.

Using this paint to cover a roof area of ​​about 1,000 square feet could generate up to 10 kilowatts of cooling power, said researchers at Purdue University. According to Ruan, this is more powerful than the air conditioners used in most homes. “When we started this project about seven years ago, we were saving energy and fighting climate change,” Ruan said in a podcast episode of The Is Purdue.
