Unlocking the cooling power of the sun!

SolCold’s nano-technological material uses the sunlight for cooling, without any power consumption. Its multi-layer material uses the Anti-Stokes technology to cool any crystal, using sunlight as the power source. And it is even more effective when it is very hot and the sun is strongest. It can be used in thin films, paint, and even […]
