Abstract: Singapore, in the midst of developing more infrastructure and buildings to cater for the need of her growing population has replaced much of the natural vegetation. Urban Heat Islands (UHI) are formed when such alterations are made especially when covered with hard surfaces such as car parking spaces, walkways and roads (collective named as Pavements). When pavements absorb solar energy, the surface temperature heats up to 50 ̊C and the emittance of absorbed solar heat would further increase the air temperatures. As a result, the ‘hot’ spots identified in Singapore have higher air temperature than the surroundings areas. This paper aims to study the effectiveness of reducing surface temperature of pavements through employing cool pavement coating and to evaluate the feasibility of implementing it in Singapore. There are three objectives of this study namely to determine the properties of cool pavement coatings, to examine the thermal performance of cool pavement coatings through a comparative study and to conduct field study on application of cool pavement coatings in the local context. Through this research study, it should be useful to encourage the adoption of cool pavement technology to reduce urban heat effects and improve the current climatic conditions.
