What is Tex-Cote – Cool Wall?
TEX•COTE® COOLWALL® Exterior Heat Reflective Paint/Coating Systems offered by GreenLiving represents a revolutionary concept in exterior wall coatings.When compared to traditional paints TEX•COTE® COOLWALL® reflects the sun’s heat and can lower exterior wall surface temperatures by as much as 40 degrees. A study conducted by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory showed that TEX•COTE® COOLWALL® can reduce a home’s cooling costs by as much as 21.9%!
How COOLWALL® Works
TEX•COTE® COOLWALL® exterior coating systems use the same heat reflective technology that the military uses to reduce heat absorbed by planes and vehicles. This same technology can be used to deflect heat away from your home.
TEX•COTE® COOLWALL® has been specially formulated to reflect solar heat by changing the invisible portion of the light spectrum, thereby helping to reflect heat without changing color.

Energy Savings Exterior Paint
On a hot day, the sun can beat down on the walls of your home, and your home can absorb as much as 90% of the radiant energy (HEAT)! Even white walls can absorb significant solar radiation. All that heat makes the inside of your home hot and uncomfortable. Running air conditioning to cool your home can be extremely expensive.
Tests conducted by the United States Department of Energy over nearly a two year period show COOLWALL’s ability to save more energy than other exterior coatings. Even ceramic coatings are not nearly as effective as the advanced technology found in TEX•COTE® COOLWALL® coatings. Just a look at what the Department of Energy has to say about ceramic coatings.
COOLWALL® – an advanced exterior coating system – tested by the Department of Energy to lower surface temperatures* – can make your home more comfortable while reducing your use of air conditioning.
TEX•COTE® COOLWALL® exterior coating systems are on average 100% more reflective (in many colors) than the conventional technologies used in all of the competing products.
Fading and Life Cycle
CEC_coolwall TEX•COTE® COOLWALL® Exterior Coating Systems regularly undergo accelerated weathering tests comparable to those used on today’s advanced automotive paints. As a result, TEX•COTE® COOLWALL® Coating Systems are proven to be highly resistant to fading.
Reduced heat build-up means less expansion and contraction stress on the coating due to thermal cycling.
COOLWALL®’s patented infrared heat reflective technology not only provides for lower surface temperatures and superior fade resistance, it also leads to increased durability.
Because COOLWALL® Exterior Paint Coating stay much cooler, their color, adhesion and other physical properties are greatly extended.
