Polymer coating to cool buildings developed by CEEC member Yuan Yang and Nanfang Yu

September 27, 2018

Columbia Engineers have developed a new paint that is able to actively cool buildings and other types of infrastructure by removing white pigment and incorporating a polymer coating. The polymeric paint exhibits nano-to-microscale air voids, that act as a spontaneous air cooler and can be fabricated, dyed, and applied exactly like commercial paint.

The full press release can be found on the Columbia Engineering website.
