New paint transforms sun's rays into cool air-conditioning
SolCold's nanotech coating is a potentially game-changing electricity-free solution for cooling buildings or equipment in intensely sunny climates
An Israeli start-up wants to turn the heat of the sun into a refrigerating substance and raises money for it. Wait, what?
SolCold develops materials that, aided by the wonders of electrophysics and chemistry, use sunlight to reduce the temperature of a surface by up to 20 degrees Celsius
A material that cools itself below the surrounding temperature just by exposing it to sunlight
Solcold is developing a unique material, no thicker than a business card. Once applied to a surface of an object, the sun's radiation triggers a reaction in our material.
The 'Coolest' Invention: This Israeli High-Tech Paint Cools Buildings With Sunlight
Natural sunlight could soon become a new, counter-intuitive, but innovative air-conditioner. Three Israeli entrepreneurs developed a way to turn energy from the sun.
Solcold – naturally cool sunlight
The sun itself could soon become a low-cost air conditioner… The sun - while it is our biggest source of light, it is also the biggest source of warmth/heat. As the sun rises, its radiation is absorbed and creates heat. The stronger the sun, the stronger the radiation, the hotter it gets.
Light-filtering paint cools your home when exposed to hot sun
The sun itself could soon become a low-cost air conditioner. A high-tech paint that actually cools when exposed to sunlight can provide a better way to chill buildings – and perhaps even solve the long-standing problem of cooling things in space.
This Paint Cools Your Home With The Power Of Sunlight
It may seem contradictory, but soon you may be able to cool your home with sunlight. Israeli company SolCold has developed a high-tech paint based on a process called 'laser cooling' to offset the cost – economically and environmentally – of using air conditioning in hot summer months.
Astonishing New Invention From Israel: Paint That Cools Your House With No Electric Bill
As usual, Israelis, the same people whose list of innovations is astonishing for a country of its size and population, have brought another unique invention to the world: a high-tech paint that utilizes the sun’s power to activate a cooling mechanism, thus giving buildings air conditioning without electricity.
תשכחו ממזגן: הפיתוח הישראלי שיקרר את הבית בעזרת השמש
מזגנים עומדים ליהפך לאחת הבעיות הגדולות של האנושות המתמודדת עם משבר האקלים. ככל שהעולם מתחמם, כך יותר אנשים מצטיידים במערכות מיזוג אוויר, שצורכות חשמל מזהם ומחממות את האוויר שסביב הבניין — מה שמגביר את ההתחממות הגלובלית וחוזר חלילה.
Israeli Startup Seeks to Cool Your Home Using Sunlight
Air-conditioning is one of the largest challenges facing humanity in a warming world. The warmer our environment gets, the more people will want to own and use air conditioners. But the air conditioners...
This Startup Harnesses the Power of the Sun to Make Things Cool
SolCold uses nanotechnology to create a coating material that uses sunlight to give a cooling effect to cars, buildings, planes, and even clothing items or electronic devices.
GLOBAL INNOVATION EXCHANGE
SolCold is working on developing special coating and paint, based on the anti-stokes fluorescence phenomenon, that uses sunlight to create a cooling effect.
