BASF developed a black paint recently that will stay cool. They used it on the Hugo Boss/Alex Thomson 60-foot carbon fiber ocean racing sailboat that circumnavigates the world in 60-100 days. Traditional black paint will make it incredibly hot inside and burn your feet on the deck and they didn’t want poor Alex to burn his feet while he’s out there all alone racing for 2 months. Traditionally they always had to paint the tops of those boats white to stay cool.
