Other markets include automotive, aerospace, industrial, defense, electronics. Two licensees already. Applications include: 1. Can coatings that keep beverage cans colder longer or cook food in cans much faster to speed production filling lines. 2. Building paints, which last longer and reduce the air-conditioning bill by 40 to 50%. 3. Automotive coatings that keep interiors cooler; coatings for engine components that will allow cooler running motors and lower fuel consumption. 4. Coatings for the Power Industry that will improve generation efficiencies, reduce losses through high voltage lines and improve cooling tower performance. This new material can be added to almost any control the flow of heat, save energy, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
