A coating technology developed by 3M
– 3M Scotchkote Poly-Tech Exp-RG 700 Solar Heat Reflective Coating – was recognized with an honorable mention in Fast Company’s World Changing Ideas of 2020 – Energy Category.
The R&D team lead by Dr. Mukesh Kumar Madhup developed 3M Scotchkote Poly-Tech Exp-RG 700 Solar Heat Reflective Coating, which when applied to a roof or surface, reflects the heat from the sunlight without absorbing.
The coating is advantageous in surface temperature reduction, helps in lowering enclosure temperatures and energy conservation thereby reducing carbon footprint. This technology has multiple applications over various surfaces including dual protection from corrosion and heat when applied as a recommended coating system.
