The Valspar Corp. has expanded its new WeatherXL coatings line with a textured “crinkly” finish designed to provide visual depth to a wide variety of building components.

Valspar rolled out the WeatherXL coil coatings line in February, for use on metal walls and roofs.

XL can be used on Hot Dip Galvanized (HDG), aluminum and Galvalume substrates, for end use in commercial and residential metal roofing, industrial metal building components, metal wall panels, and other metal building components.

Valspar says the silicone polyester resin system, available in a variety of colors, is engineered for scratch, fade, weather and chalk resistance; gloss and color retention; and durability.

WeatherXL Crinkle

WeatherXL Crinkle Finish is designed to create a shifting and shimmering effect that mirrors the eye’s natural horizontal motion with the texture, according to Valspar.

Crinkle is available in a variety of standard and premium colors, to suit a wide range of projects, according to Valspar. The coating also features strong color retention that meets current solar reflective (SR) standards for Energy Star ratings, the company says.


SMP-based WeatherXL Crinkle is available in a variety of standard and premium colors.

“WeatherXL Crinkle Finish is truly a product that you have to see and feel to understand its texture,” said Jeff Alexander, VP of Sales for Valspar.

WeatherXL Crinkle is formulated with an enhanced WeatherXL silicone polyester resin system and shares that system's hardness characteristics, according to Valspar.
