Thermioncool DC cools dark-colored materials

News | July 1, 2008 | By:

Problem: When exposed to sunlight, dark-colored materials, such as black synthetic lines used for seating, can get uncomfortably hot.

Solution: Dark-colored surfaces made with Thermioncool DC, a patent-pending technology developed by Achilles USA Inc., reflect up to 75 percent of the sun’s infrared rays. In-house testing comparing the product with similar dark-colored materials in direct sunlight measured surface temperatures 29 degrees F cooler with Thermioncool DC, a real advantage for auto interiors, motorcycle seats, convertible tops and other sun-baked applications.
