    black surfaces absorb heat. white or metallic surfaces reflect heat. metallic surfaces are also good conductors of heat.

    yeah what elpaw said but you can add that mirrored surfaces are good reflectors (fairly obviously) as well

    yeah its how coffee flasks are made, shiny reflectors to reflect the heat back inside the flask.
