[coating information of China, they all play a better role in energy saving to varying degrees] recently, the authoritative American journal Science published a research result on the beetle of the genus Chelonia. Scientists believe that the mystery of bright colors on this beetle's shell has been revealed, It will help the industry to produce ultra-thin white materials with better texture and brighter color, such as paper, pigments, plastics, etc

golden turtle beetle, which is a little-known beetle species, its white shell is much brighter than the general white material. The study was jointly completed by Dr. Peter vicus of the school of physics at the University of Exeter, UK, and colleagues from Bristol University and inger ceramics mining, the world's largest manufacturer of white industrial mineral materials. The researchers said that the bright color of the beetle was the result of the evolution of its unique, thin and flat body structure. The thickness of the shell was 1/200 mm, which was only 1/10 of the diameter of human hair. Industrial mineral materials used in daily life, such as high-grade paper, plastic and some coatings, need to be twice the thickness of this beetle shell to achieve the same degree of white effect

according to the evaluation standard of whiteness and brightness of the international organization for standardization, the white shell of golden turtle beetle is whiter and brighter than milk, tooth glaze and other materials with considerable thickness in nature. Dr. vicus said, "such a thin thickness produces such bright white light, which is very rare in nature. When I first found it, my intuition told me that this beetle had some differences."

vicus added: "once we develop a new technology inspired by this beetle and apply it, great changes will take place in our future, such as the white paper for writing, the white of teeth, and even the white light source, which is updated very quickly, will achieve the ideal color to a large extent."

all kinds of colors in nature and people's daily life are achieved through regular coloring. Unlike other colors, the internal structure of white substances is randomly arranged, and the surface of the object can scatter all wavelengths at the same time. 1. Trouser tearing method: Trouser tearing method is a visible light of the experimental method for the tear resistance of plastic films and sheets. Observing the image of golden turtle beetle under the electron microscope, Dr. vicus found that the body, head and legs of this beetle were covered with flat, long, overlapping shells, and its internal structure was highly random. It is this extremely irregular internal structure that makes it have extraordinary light scattering ability. Depending on the gap between the layers to balance the size of its internal structure, this beetle has a stronger ability to scatter white light than the fiber or tooth glaze of white paper

golden turtle beetle is produced in Southeast Asia. People think its white is a camouflage color, which is very similar to the local white mushroom color, and it is the result of natural evolution. This phenomenon is called "biological simulation" in biology. The corresponding discipline is called "bionics". Vicus calls it: "This is a new technology developed by studying the survival mechanisms of natural organisms, and then imitating and using these mechanisms. It can be used as a technical support for the development of many new technologies and the promotion of the existing technical level. The system design presented by nature to human beings is evolved through millions of years of evolutionary history under a special competition mechanism. Natural organisms have evolved through a long period of change, and their functions have gradually evolved. Natural‘ Product 'has experienced complex evolution and development in the process of evolution, such as the color of butterfly wings and the ultra-low surface resistance of shark skin. Nowadays, human beings have fully realized the significance of natural evolution, otherwise they need to adjust the control parameters of the experimental machine at any time (that is, the conventional P, I, D parameters). Photonic biology has promoted the development of many technical fields, including cosmetics, anti-counterfeiting products and solar cells. "

in 2005, Dr. vicus studied the principle that butterflies emit fluorescence by absorbing and reflecting ultraviolet rays, and used this technology, which has existed in nature for 30million years, to invent high-efficiency light-emitting diodes. Dr. vicus also established a cooperative relationship with L'Oreal cosmetics company to develop a pigment free photon cosmetics based on the luminous principle of butterflies

as a partner of this project, inger ceramics Mining Group has been committed to mining and processing high-quality minerals as technical reserves to improve product performance and production efficiency. Our products are widely used in daily life, such as architecture, personal care, paper, paint, plastic, ceramics, telecommunications and beverage filtration

this research result will have special significance for Exeter in southwest England, because it is the only origin of porcelain clay, an important white pigment. This is why the vast majority of scientific research bases that need to use this white pigment choose to develop new projects here
