WeatherXL™ crinkle finish brings visual depth to projects

As architects increasingly use color to create unique effects, Valspar is creating a unique roofing and wall panel material to manifest these innovative architectural visions. Valspar’s new WeatherXL Crinkle Finish uses a breakthrough technology to create a unique coating appearance.

WeatherXL Crinkle Finish has a textured finish that enhances visual depth and adds a richness to color. Its subtle shading creates a shifting effect by breaking up light, providing some excellent performance characteristics.

WeatherXL Crinkle Finish is ideally suited to:

  • Create texture and add visual depth
  • Ensure excellent durability
  • Minimize transit and installation damage
  • Mask blemishes and defects
  • Provide architectural variety and interest
  • Boost energy efficiency

Our new super-strength effects coating lives up to the Valspar name by providing excellent durability and hardness to important projects. In fact, WeatherXL provides excellent color retention and the best protection for fading and chalkings.

For projects seeking LEED and Energy Star certification, WeatherXL can meet solar reflectivity standards. This helps reduce the operating costs of projects and cut energy bills by keeping buildings cooler.
