World’s lightest paint created.
Researchers at the University of Central Florida have created the lightest paint in the world.
The Research Team claims that the paint is energy-efficient and can be turned into any colour and will last for centuries.
They have also claimed that the paint is environment friendly and has been designed in a way that keeps the surface cooler after application compared to regular commercial paint
The plasmonic paint has a nanoscale structural arrangement of colourless material, which is aluminium oxide and aluminium, and not the traditional pigments that are used to create colours
Plasmonic paint differs from the usual paint as its structural colourants absorb, scatter and reflect the light based on the geometrical arrangement of nanostructures in comparison to pigment colourants which control the absorption of light based on the pigmented material's electronic property.
