Concrete as Solar Reflectance Material

Concrete does a very good job of reflecting solar energy. That is the finding from a Portland Cement Association (PCA) study which measured the solar reflectance index (SRI) of 45 concrete mixes. Lighter colored materials (such as concrete) generally have a higher solar reflectance. They reflect heat from the sun and do not warm the air very much.
