A Study of Thermal Performance on Cool Colorful Water-Based Reflective Coatings for Building
This paper presented the results of a comparative study aiming to investigate the effect of reflective coatings on lowering surface temperatures of matrix. Moreover, the important factors of the amount and the color of colored hollow-ceramic micro sphere were discussed. It was demonstrated that the use of reflective coatings could reduce a white surface temperature by 6.5 °C compared to a sample. The temperature difference became to reduce while the color of coatings turned to dark from the white to the yellow.
