Sto Corp. has introduced a new heat-reflective exterior wall coating that is available in 570 colors and can be applied on most cladding.

StoCoat X-black is a 100% acrylic resin system that reflects the sun’s near infrared light energy and lowers surface temperatures significantly compared to traditional paints of the same color, according to Sto.

StoCoat X-black helps to diffuse heat evenly across exterior walls to provide "passive" cooling, Sto says.

The coating boasts “superior fade resistance” even in dark colors and is recommended for deferred maintenance programs, the company says.

Sto Coat X-black may be applied on most claddings, including concrete, EIFS, stucco, wood, brick, or pre-painted surfaces.
