Looking for info on "greenhouse" and "anti-greenhouse" surfaces

A long time ago I saw mention in an article of "colored" surfaces that
had been developed that in one case absorb well in the visible range
and are poor blackbodies in the IR, and in the other case are good
radiators in the IR but reflective in the visible.  The latter may even
have been called "anti-greenhouse paint", but I'm not sure.  Has anyone
else heard of these?  What are they called?  Are they available
commercially?

You're looking for a "selective surface" in both instances.
Since you're concerned about solar then I would suggest a
search like "solar selective surface". :)
