TEX•COTE®’s Special Ingredient to High-Quality Coating
February 20, 2018
TEX•COTE® has spent several decades developing and refining our products to be the best. TEX•COTE®’s COOLWALL® products contain a special ingredient to formulate success: Kynar® polymer. We are going to highlight what Kynar® polymer does and the advantages it gives our TEX•COTE® COOLWALL® products.
Kynar® History and High-Quality
There is only one manufacturer in the United States who makes Kynar® polymer. Arkema Inc. produces industry and specialty chemicals, and TEX•COTE® is proud to partner with them to deliver quality products that last. Due to its low water-absorption and low surface tension, Kynar® PVDF (polyvinylidene fluoride) resin is a natural barrier to mold, mildew, and dirt. This gives our COOLWALL® products protection that lasts the lifetime of the coating. As mildewcides are known to leach out over time in conventional coatings, TEX•COTE®’s COOLWALL® infrared heat-reflective coating system with Kynar® prevents this from happening. Kynar® is also resistant to UV degradation, making TEX•COTE®’s COOLWALL® coatings resistant to chalking and fading unlike many other coating systems.
Benefits of COOLWALL® with Kynar® Coating
Cooler temperatures. COOLWALL® with Kynar® coating system works just like Mother Nature does to keep your house cool. Think about how on a hot, summer day you can rely on the grass to keep your feet cool. The coating system works in the same way to provide reduced surface temperatures of up to 40°F. This number will vary based on which color you choose, your geographic location, climate condition, and substrate type. Though there are variables that can impact temperature reductions, there is still a noticeable impact compared to other coatings without Kynar® polymer.
Superior Selection and Retention. With TEX•COTE®’s wide range of heat reflective color options, you have 570 colors to choose from. You can also expect superior gloss retention for a look that doesn’t fade or appear or dull.
Reduction of costs. TEX•COTE®’s COOLWALL® with Kynar® coating greatly reduces your maintenance costs with its protective qualities, as mentioned above. Resistance to mold, mildew, and dirt along with eliminating the cost of constant repainting saves you money. Imagine the savings with a one-time coating cost!
Promising Warranty. Our products are protected under TEX•COTE®’s warranty to guarantee no chipping, flaking, or peeling for as long as you own your home. It is also professionally applied by our authorized applicators for your convenience.

Tested by the Department of Energy
TEX•COTE®’s COOLWALL® has been tested by the U.S. Department of Energy. In a controlled testing environment on the DOE’s test wall at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, the results measured Total Solar Reflectance for COOLWALL® at .513 compared to a traditional coating in the same color at only .246. TEX•COTE® promises to continue delivering high-quality products that save our customers money and demonstrate proven success.
