BASF launches Tersus Color Coat for Wall Systems
Tersus Color Coat is a high-build, exterior protective coating
The Wall Systems business of BASF Corp., a manufacturer of exterior insulation and finish systems (EIFS), stucco and air/water-resistive barriers, has launched Tersus Color Coat.
Tersus Color Coat is a high-build, exterior protective coating designed to provide water repellency and enhanced resistance to environmental soiling. Tersus Color Coat, a modified acrylic smooth coating, utilizes a proprietary BASF formula to produce a highly hydrophobic, non-polar surface that repels water.
When water comes in contact with Tersus Color Coat, it beads and carries away dirt, soil and debris. This inherent property also makes it more resistant to mold and mildew. Its anti-soiling properties have been proven using two industry established test methods, ASTM D3719 – Dirt Collection and Miami Dade County TAS 143-95 to confirm dirt pickup resistance.
