Whether at home, in a vehicle or in the office, dark components heat up as they absorb sunlight. This heat is released into their surroundings – so in the summer, things can get really hot.
But this need not be the case. With the help of functional pigments, houses or vehicles stay cooler inside even under intense sunshine – and even with dark colors. The trick behind this solar heat management is that the material reflects more sunlight than it absorbs – so even dark components or construction elements remain nice and cool.
