Coatings Cool Down Pavements

High temperature of pavements can lead to increased energy consumption of nearby buildings, intensive outdoor discomfort, and reduction of pavement life and reliability. Applying engineered surface coating over pavements can reduce their temperatures significantly, therefore mitigating the aforementioned adverse effects.

As part of ongoing joint research efforts between Arizona State University’s National Center of Excellence for SMART Innovations, and Princeton University’s Environmental Fluid Mechanics Research Group, the research team utilized four pavement slabs at Creative Paving Solutions, LLC in Tempe, Arizona to evaluate their temperature fluctuation.
