New Product Announcement: Hydrophobic Wall Finish


Building materials firm Sto Corp., recently announced the launch of Stolit HDP, an acrylic-based textured wall finish with enhanced hydrophobic properties.

According to Sto Corp., the hydrophobic wall finish is less susceptible to dirt accumulation and microbial growth. The coating is also noted to be more resistant to freeze-thaw cycles and mildew, which will save users on long-term maintenance costs.

James Howell, Associate Product Manager at Sto Corp, notes that when it came to the development of Stolit HDP, it was all about providing more options in the battle against water.

“Moisture is the enemy,” explained Howell, adding, “Stolit HDP provides impressive levels of facade protection because the finish maintains a higher contact angle water-bead, causing less exposure to moisture to the finished surface.” 

Stolit HDP comes in four texture options or can be applied using any StoSignature application technique.
