The Wall Systems business of BASF Corporation announced the launch of Tersus Color Coat. Tersus Color Coat is a high build, exterior protective coating designed to provide excellent 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.

“These tests enable the design professional to evaluate and ultimately specify minimum requirements of dirt collection resistance,” said Peter Daechsel, national marketing manager, BASF’s Wall Systems business. “Tersus Color Coat helps buildings stay clean and fresh, longer than regular coatings.”

Tersus Color Coat is available factory tinted or as a point of sale tint base in five gallon pails.
