Restoration of homes in Japan 

In this Case study we will elaborate on the Restoration of homes all over Japan that are using COOLWALL® coatings containing Kynar Aquatec® PVDF.

These are becoming more and more the choice of Japanese home owners to refinish the walls of their homes. 


COOLWALL® produced by Tex-Cote is an infrared heat-reflective water based exterior coating that incorporates industry-leading Kynar Aquatec® resin. Kynar Aquatec® PVDF is a high performance polymer developed for water based coatings while maintaining the durability of Kynar 500® resin. 

The high weatherability of Kynar Aquatec® PVDF in COOLWALL® prevents the system from degradation by sunlight, heat, and moisture helping to achieve a long lifetime of the building. By increasing the building life, COOLWALL® can reduce the total CO2 and VOC emission since the maintenance frequency is decreased.

KTC Facilities, a construction coating company in Japan, have reached out to Tex-Cote to bring this innovative technology to the Japanese market. Thanks to the previously mentioned benefits, it has been accepted well in Japan.

Homes from the east (Yokohama) to west (Fukuoka) have been recoated with COOLWALL® giving a great new appearance to the building with additional traits. The number of cases are increasing every month.
