Sto Corp. has added new colors to the StoColor Wood Stain collection, giving architects and designers an even greater range of creative options. StoColor Wood Stain, available for use with StoCast Wood, combines the benefits of a stain and sealer in a single product. It achieves an authentic wood grain appearance, boasting unparalleled richness and depth of color, along with superior UV resistance. The new color offerings are for both interior and exterior applications.

The collection boasts 25 colors, such as weathered walnut, rich cedar and weathered Serengeti. Fifteen are standard single-color tones and 10 are dual-color tones achieved by applying two different standard colors. The mix of colors provides even more depth to the wood grain. Versatility and design freedom is key with Sto, and StoColor Wood Stain can be custom matched to a vast range of colors, with a wider color range able to be achieved by mixing different stain colors on the wall.

StoCast Wood can be applied as the finish layer to any Sto cladding system on walls or soffits or can be directly applied to most common construction surfaces, such as CMU or drywall. With Sto’s innovative products, there is a lot of opportunity for design — from subtle accents to the entire outer surface of any building. Combine the look of wood with brick, stone, metal or traditional plaster using the same Sto system and enjoy a comprehensive, one-source warranty that protects your fully engineered system from the sheathing out.

“StoColor Wood Stain has a modern aesthetic that looks like real wood,” said Karine Galla, director of product management at Sto. “I think architects and designers are going to be amazed. If you’re looking for an environmentally friendly and lightweight alternative to real wood, this is it.”

A StoColor Wood Stain color chart and StoCast Wood Brochure, plus 6 x 8-foot and 14 x 14-foot samples, are all available upon request. For more information, visit
