COOLWALL® and REFLECT-TEC® are two of their most popular products, both offering great benefits to businesses and homeowners who want to protect their property from the elements. Both products provide superior protection against fading, chalking, and dirt buildup while also reflecting UV rays to keep your property cooler and reduce energy costs. In this blog post, we'll explore the many benefits of TEX-COTE® COOLWALL® and REFLECT-TEC®.


What is TEX-COTE®?

TEX-COTE® is a revolutionary coating technology that has been in use since 1979. The system was created to provide superior protection and superior beauty to a wide range of exterior surfaces, including wood, stucco, fiber cement, concrete block, brick and pre-cast concrete. TEX-COTE® is made up of a unique combination of polymers, resins, and pigments that helps provide superior adhesion, durability, and color retention.


In 2020, TEX-COTE® was acquired by Tnemec Companies Inc., one of the world's leading manufacturers of high-performance coatings. This acquisition has enabled TEX-COTE® to continue to provide superior products and services to its customers and partners around the world.


TEX-COTE® offers two main products: COOLWALL® and REFLECT-TEC®. Both products offer superior performance and protection for residential and commercial properties. COOLWALL® is designed to reflect heat and protect against fading, chalking, peeling, and mildew. REFLECT-TEC® provides superior heat-reflective technology that helps reduce energy costs while also protecting against fading, chalking, peeling, and mildew.



What are the benefits of TEX-COTE® COOLWALL®?

TEX-COTE® COOLWALL® is an innovative, energy-efficient coating that helps reduce the temperature of your home’s exterior walls. It works by reflecting up to 86% of the sun’s radiant energy and reducing surface temperatures by up to 40°F. This means that your property's walls stay cooler and your air conditioner won’t have to work as hard to keep you cool. With TEX-COTE® COOLWALL®, you can save up to 21.9% on cooling costs!*


COOLWALL® is a 100% acrylic coating that provides superior protection against fading, chalking, dirt, mildew, and UV rays. It is also resistant to cracking, peeling, and blistering, making it ideal for a variety of climates and environments. The durable finish also resists moisture penetration, making it great for damp areas such as coastal regions. And because it is formulated with a low volatile organic compound (VOC), it meets strict environmental regulations.


Additionally, COOLWALL® is available in a wide range of colors and textures, allowing you to choose the perfect look for your home. With TEX-COTE® COOLWALL®, you can get the style you want while also enjoying the benefits of improved energy efficiency.


*Percentage of cooling cost, peak cooling load, and surface temperature reductions will vary based on color chosen, geographical location, climate condition, and substrate type. Percentage of cooling cost savings are based on the DOE study which showed savings ranging from 4.2-21.9%. Percentage of peak cooling load reductions are based on models generated from the Roof Savings Calculator Beta Release v 0.92 Oak Ridge and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratories when compared to a non-cool roof. In some climates, there may be a heating penalty.



What are the benefits of TEX-COTE® REFLECT-TEC®?

REFLECT-TEC® by TEX-COTE® is a revolutionary reflective coating system that works to reduce the effects of the sun’s heat and ultraviolet (UV) radiation. This product utilizes advanced nanotechnology to create a long-lasting finish that's environmentally friendly, energy-efficient, and easy to maintain. The REFLECT-TEC® formula reflects up to 80% of the sun’s energy, resulting in a cooler home environment and lower energy bills. It is designed to protect the exterior surfaces of homes, businesses, and other structures from the sun’s damaging rays, while providing a rich, beautiful finish. Additionally, this reflective finish helps to block fading due to UV light and makes paint last longer. The combination of color pigment and reflective properties helps the exterior surfaces of your property look better longer, reducing maintenance costs in the long run. With a durable, high-performance finish that comes in an array of designer colors, REFLECT-TEC® provides superior protection and value.

Not only does REFLECT-TEC® provide superior protection for a variety of surfaces, it also is effective on tile roofs. The material helps to keep tile roofs cool, thereby preventing premature aging due to sun exposure. It also helps protect against extreme weather conditions like hail, wind, and rain.
