A Glowing Hue: Nissan develops UV-absorbing coating in partnership with STARPATH

Toronto, Ontario — Nissan has created an ultra-violet (UV) absorbing glow-in-the-dark automotive paint in partnership with STARPATH for its all-electric model Leaf.

The automaker specifically worked with inventor Hamish Scott, creator of STARPATH, to design the paint coating that absorbs UV energy during the day and then releases this energy as light to glow-in-the-dark for between eight to ten hours.

Although glow-in-the-dark paint is not a new concept, Nissan’s UV-energized paint is different in that it is solely made up of organic materials. The paint contains a material known as Strontium Aluminate, a solid, odorless and chemically inert material, making it safe to use in automotive manufacturing.

If you’re sick of ultra-bright headlights—or want your vehicle to be even brighter—or, are part moth, then this glow-in-the-dark paint will surely make you beam.
