Our Green Technology
Better for Your Home or Business. Better for the Environment.
Mid-South Coating’s TEX-COTE® COOLWALL® coating system not only offers protection for your home or business, it is also an environmentally friendly technology. You won’t find a home improvement contractor with more respect for – and concern for – the environment, or with our commitment to using clean and green technology.
The reflective pigments embedded in our TEX-COTE® coating materials use the same technology as those used to coat U.S. Navy ships and to reflect radar energy on “stealth” aircraft. Tests have shown that, in certain colors, TEX-COTE® is up to 200% more reflective that traditional paint. UV rays that penetrate normal paint or stains are effectively reflected by TEX-COTE®.
This high efficiency reflective property means walls coated with TEX-COTE® can be up to 40 degrees (F) cooler which, in turn, reduces interior building temperatures. This can significantly lower the amount of energy needed to run air conditioning units during warm weather, cutting utility costs and reducing pollution created by power plants. Test by the U.S. Department of Energy show energy saving of up to 21.9% using TEX-COTE® COOLWALL® coatings.
Unlike paint, which needs to be scraped off and reapplied every few years, TEX-COTE® only need to be applied once, and lasts for the life of the building. This eliminates repeated exposure of the harmful volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that are found in almost all paint formulations.
Your investment in a TEX-COTE® COOLWALL® coating system not only delivers superior protection for your home or commercial property, but also goes a long way toward helping reduce your impact on the environment.
