NEW Color Offering: Explore the Range of StoCast Wood’s StoColor Wood Stain Specialty Finishes

StoColor® Lotusan® keeps facades clean and beautiful.

Surface cleaning properties
modeled after the lotus leaf.

Dirt particles are unable to obtain a hold on the leaves of the lotus plant and simply flow off with the rain droplets that fall on the plant. The StoColor® Lotusan®, part of Sto’s iQ Technology™ family of coatings, possesses a highly water-repellent surface similar to that of the lotus leaf. Its microstructure has been modeled on the lotus plant to minimize the contact area for water and dirt. The surface additionally offers enhanced hydrophobic properties.

The problem with conventional exterior paints: The soiling of the façade becomes increasingly visible over time. On weather exposed sides in particular, microorganisms find an ideal environment for colonization in the form of adequate moisture and nutrients from dirt deposits.

The Lotus-Effect® technology on façades: Water and dirt flow off immediately. The façade remains clean and attractive.
