This report documents research into novel experimental paints made from color-reversible pigments. These pigments are of two types Photochromic and thermochromic. The first group changes color on exposure to light, and the second changes color when subjected to a change in temperature. If successfully incorporated into a coating and applied to walls and roofs, these pigments could reduce heating and cooling costs by presenting a more absorbent color in the winter and a more reflective color in the summer.
