Sunlight Absorbing Paint

New Discovery

The new sunlight-absorbing paint that RMIT Researchers have stumbled upon contains a newly developed compound that acts similarly to silica gel, this silica gel has been used in sachets to soak up moisture and keep food, medicines and electronics fresh and dry.
 
But unlike silica gel, the new material, ‘synthetic molybdenum-sulphide’, also acts by increasing it’s conductivity temperature in the presence of impurities and then catalyses the splitting of water atoms into hydrogen and oxygen.
 

 RMIT Lead Researcher

“We found that mixing the compound with titanium oxide particles leads to a sunlight-absorbing paint that produces hydrogen fuel from solar energy and moist air” Dr Torben Daeneke – RMIT Lead Researcher 

Dr Torben said, 
“Titanium oxide is the white pigment that is already commonly used in wall paint, meaning that the simple addition of the new material can convert a brick wall into energy harvesting and fuel production real estate”. 

“Our new development has a big range of advantages, there’s no need for clean or filtered water to feed the system. Any place that has water vapour in the air, even remote areas far from water, can produce fuel.”
 

Hydrogen is the cleanest source of energy

On top of that, Dr Torben Daenekes’ colleague Professor Kourosh Kalantar-zadeh stated that – “Hydrogen is the cleanest source of energy and could be used in fuel cells as well as conventional combustion engines as an alternative to fossil fuels”. 

“This system can also be used in very dry but hot climates near oceans. The sea water is evaporated by the hot sunlight and the vapour can then be absorbed to produce fuel. 
“This is an extraordinary concept – making fuel from the sun and water vapour in the air.”

Why Choose Us?

Let’s face it. Every House Painter should have insurances in place before they step foot onto anyones property. 
If anything were to go a little pear shaped, we are covered from head to toe with full home and public liabilty insurance.
If you’re looking to have your home professionally painted, it’s best to choose a house painter in Sydney that has the appropriate insurances.

We aim to maintain our 5 star Google rating reviews, along with our Truelocal client reviews. 
At the end of the day, as professional house painters we want our clients to feel pleased with the results and we go out of our way to make sure that’s the case. One of our strongest attributes as a painting company is our ability to communicate effectively and our willingness to manage each individual project with as little interruption and stress as possible. 

We don’t just give your ceilings and walls a once over, patch and sand – We make sure all framework has been gapped and woodwork patched as smoothly as possible. If your ceilings and walls are suffering from a bad case of wear and tear, we give them a skim coat to make the surfaces as smooth as we can. Windows, doors, skirting and framing can get hit a lot over the years, so we like to pay closer attention to getting those surfaces sorted out first. For us, there’s nothing a little bit of enthusiasm can’t fix.

Let’s face it.. The competition is hot, as professional painters in Sydney we’d be fooling ourselves if we didn’t notice the Elephant in the room.
Luckily for us we are always up for a challenge!

As far as painting goes, we work ourselves out, to be able to achieve an overall fantastically impressive painting job for our clients. Over the years we’ve noticed a change in painting prices and we’ve had to match those by making our house painting quotes more cost effective while still maintaining our high standards. We will continue to provide for the people in need of a fresh coat of paint and a happy set of hands.
