Abstract (Summary)

The increasing trend of air-conditioning energy consumption causes financial burden and high carbon dioxide emissions to especially hot climate countries. Exploration for energy-free heat shields to keep the interiors cool and comfortable thus becomes more attractive. Among various solutions, solar heat reflective coatings using cool materials for building applications, which possess high solar reflectance and high infrared emittance, is competent because of low cost, easy maintenance and technological versatility.

This PhD research project focuses on developing polymer-based solar reflective coatings with either pristine or hybrid format. (Abstract shortened by UMI.)
