June 5, 2018
Textured Coatings of America, Inc. is proud to offer products that save energy and offer our customers a full palette of colors to choose from. Our flagship product, TEX•COTE® COOLWALL® SUPER•COTE™, keeps buildings cool and protects home and building exteriors. In this week’s blog, we highlight the benefits of using TEX•COTE® COOLWALL® SUPER•COTE™ and what makes it stand out from the competitors.
Durable Textured Coatings
TEX•COTE® COOLWALL® SUPER•COTE™ offers homeowners and businesses reliable and beautiful solutions to protecting their home’s or building’s exterior. TEX•COTE® COOLWALL® SUPER•COTE™ is, on average, 10 times thicker than ordinary paint and is an IR Exterior Coating System. This means it uses the same heat reflective technology the military uses to reduce the heat signature, which is the solar heat absorbed by planes and vehicles.
Much like a military vehicle, a building or home absorbs heat from the sun, escalating the cost of electricity needed to cool the building. TEX•COTE® products are energy-efficient to reduce cooling costs, saving homeowners and businesses money year-round.
All TEX•COTE® products meet the most stringent federal standards for use on military bases, which require the coatings to withstand the equivalent of 40 years of exterior exposure. Our high-quality textured coatings are durable and designed to last, which eliminates the need of constant repainting.
Solar Reflectivity and Style
TEX•COTE® COOLWALL® SUPER•COTE™ has been specially formulated to reflect solar heat by changing the invisible portion of the light spectrum, thereby reflecting heat without altering color. Lower exterior temperatures can lead to lower interior temperatures, which reduces costly air conditioning expenses. A study conducted by the U. S. Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory showed that the TEX•COTE® COOLWALL® SUPER•COTE™ coatings can reduce a home’s cooling costs by as much as 21.9 percent.
In addition to the energy savings, TEX•COTE® COOLWALL® SUPER•COTE™ features a full palette of beautiful colors to enhance any home’s style. It is designed to last a lifetime to keep your home or building more vibrant than ever.
