CoolStain from NewLook

CoolStain’s formula incorporates infrared reflective pigment technologies to minimize heat build in objects exposed to sunlight.

Offered by NewLook International, CoolStain is ideal for pool decks, patios and sidewalks, city parks, aquatic areas, and other locations where the hot summer sun beats down on concrete.

CoolStain is able to reduce surface temperatures by 17 1/2 F to 50 F, which allows for more comfort when walking barefoot during the hot summer months. It also improves solar reflectivity, lowers energy absorption, which reduces heat emission, and qualifies for LEED points.

The cooling properties of CoolStain last as long as the color remains on the surface. Eight colors are available, and color matching is an option. It is not necessary to seal ColorStain, but it can be done without affecting its properties.
