TEX•COTE® COOLWALL® Coating Systems regularly undergo accelerated weathering tests comparable to those used on today’s advanced automotive paints. As a result, TEX•COTE® COOLWALL® Coating Systems are proven to be highly resistant to fading.

Discover The Effects of Fading

Compare the way TEX•COTE® COOLWALL® technology helps reduce the effects of fading when compared to some of the leading paint products on the market today.

Accelerated weathering with 5000 hours of testing is equivalent to approximately 10-12 years of southern exposure (much longer in northern climates). Every 1,000 hours is equivalent to 2-3 years of exposure.

FADE STUDIES

Traditionally, light colors have been used because of their ability to reflect much of the sun’s radiation back in to the atmosphere, keeping the exterior of a structure cooler and reducing fading. Dark colors have always been more aesthetically pleasing, but have lead to extreme heat build-up and rapid fading. As evidenced in the following case studies, COOLWALL®’s heat reflective properties lead to superior fade resistance when compared to traditional paint.

The picture below shows the dramatic effect that the sun’s rays have had on the conventional paint after only 3 ½ years of exposure. At the time of application, both colors matched identically. Now, the conventional paint has changed by ΔE = 8.72 as compared to a change in COOLWALL® of only ΔE = 0.92. “Delta E (ΔE)” is a unit of measure that calculates and quantifies the difference between two colors – a test sample and a standard. A Delta E of less than 1.0 is considered as undetectable by the average human eye.

The picture below shows the dramatic effect that the sun’s rays have had on the conventional paint after only 2 ½ years of exposure. At the time of application, both colors matched identically. Now, the darker colored conventional paint has changed by ∆E = 6.40 as compared to a change in COOLWALL® of only ΔE = 0.96. The lighter colored conventional paint has changed by ΔE = 5.67 as compared to a change in COOLWALL® of only ΔE = 0.71. “Delta E (ΔE)” is a unit of measure that calculates and quantifies the difference between two colors – a test sample and a standard.  A Delta E of less than 1.0 is considered as undetectable by the average human eye.

The picture below shows the dramatic effect that the sun’s rays have had on the conventional paint after only 4 years of exposure. At the time of application, both colors matched identically. Now, the conventional paint has changed by ΔE = 6.31 as compared to a change in COOLWALL® of only ΔE = 1.14. “Delta E (ΔE)” is a unit of measure that calculates and quantifies the difference between two colors – a test sample and a standard.  A Delta E of less than 1.0 is considered as undetectable by the average human eye.
