Monopol strikes gold at Equip Auto

equip_auto_2013_logo_col22Monopol has just been announced as the winner the Golf Trophy in the OEM & New Technologies category at the 2013 Equip Auto Grands Prix  for auto innovation. The winning product was the Monopol Peintures for the SOLAR Monopol® hightech clearcoat.

This product, a result of nanoparticle technology, results in a temperature difference of up to 13°C in strong sunlight, compared to a traditional varnish without this type of pigment.

You should also note that this coating can also be applied to windows, including panoramic roofs and sunroofs.
