Chemistry is mobilizing for the future: smart and BASF jointly developed the concept car smart forvision. It combines unique design with innovative technologies related to energy efficiency, lightweight design and temperature management: A car full of strong ideas.

BASF's special new pigments allow black and other dark surfaces -- not just white -- to reflect infrared radiation. As a result, heat absorption in vehicles is reduced and energy is saved that would otherwise be needed for air conditioning. The new highly efficient iGloss® clearcoat maintains the scratch resistance and long-term durability of glossy effect coatings. The smart for vision features a white special-effect coating with glass flakes that create a gleaming metallic look. In addition, the copper colored passenger cell accentuates the car's impact. The secret behind that: BASF liquid metal coating contains aluminum flakes that appear to change from light to dark on the surface depending on the viewer's perspective.

Further information about smart forvision, the car of the future, car finish, coating, iGloss, glossy effect coating and the project of smart and BASF can be found at:
