Heubach: As an answer to the question whether pigments could be developed that reduce the potential of buildings to heat up due to exposure to sunlight, Heubach has developed Heucodur® IR pigments. These pigments are able to reflect IR radiation, therefore exhibiting significantly reduced heat build-up as compared to conventional pigments. Because of the reduced surface temperature, the use of these pigments extends the shelf life of the polymeric matrix through a minimization of thermo-induced degradation effects and substantially reduces the heat build-up.
