a bright blue pigment discovered in 2009 by OSU chemists which has high solar reflectance indicates that this ‘cool pigment’ could be used in a variety of exterior applications by reducing surface temperatures, cooling costs, and energy consumption. as a result of this testing, Shepherd Color Co. has licensed the patent for commercialization efforts.
