Sto Corp. Featured Product: StoCoat X-black, An IR Reflective Coating


StoCoat™ X-black™
IR Reflective Coating

StoCoat™ X-black™ is a 100% acrylic exterior wall coating system that reflects the sun’s near infrared light energy and lowers surface temperatures significantly compared to traditional paints of the same color. This energy saving coating works well even in medium and darker colors. StoCoat™ X-black™ also minimizes color fading which eliminates the need for frequent repainting. It can be applied to most claddings, including EIFS, stucco, concrete, wood, brick or pre-painted surfaces and is available in more than 570 colors.


Longer life-cycle performance of the building

  • With its superior fade resistance even in dark colors and durable 100% acrylic resin system, StoCoat™ X-black™ lasts longer and is ideal for deferred maintenance programs.

  • Because of the high infrared reflectance, StoCoat™ X-black™ significantly lowers the amount of heat absorbed by the wall surface, minimizing the natural expansion/contraction of the substrate and reducing building fatigue.
Substantial energy savings
  • StoCoat™ X-black™ reflects the sun’s infrared radiation, keeping the exterior cooler and minimizing heat buildup around the building, which can cut the building’s cooling-related energy costs by 22 percent according to the U.S. Department of Energy.*

  • The use of StoCoat™ X-black™ helps diffuse heat evenly across the wall, providing a “passive” cooling technique.
Environmental benefits
  • By preventing heat buildup around buildings, StoCoat™ X-black™ can reduce the urban heat island effect,**lowering the level of smog and improving air quality. It also decreases the demand on electrical utilities’ power plants, most of which burn fossil fuels to generate electricity.

  • StoCoat™ X-black™ is a low VOC coating which meets the requirements of green building rating systems such as LEED©.
