Why It Matters: Taking the heat off Singapore - The importance of conducting research with such cool coatings

Under a pilot project that aims to reduce ambient temperature by up to 2 deg c, a new type of heat-reflective paint will be used on some 130 Housing Board blocks in Tampines. But what are these cool coatings and how can they help with cooling temperatures of buildings?
