As architects increasingly use color to create unique effects, Valspar is creating a unique roofing and wall panel material to manifest these innovative architectural visions. Valspar’s new WeatherXL Crinkle Finish uses a breakthrough technology to create a unique coating appearance.

WeatherXL Crinkle Finish has a textured finish that enhances visual depth and adds a richness to color. Its subtle shading creates a shifting effect by breaking up light, providing some excellent performance characteristics. It has been responsively designed to create a shimmering effect which mirrors the eye’s natural horizontal motion with the texture. WeatherXL Crinkle Finish boasts an array of color options to fit any project, and we have six crinkle colors for any roofing panel, including Black, Charcoal, Burnished Slate, evergreen, Burgundy and Cocoa Brown.

WeatherXL Crinkle Finish is ideally suited to:
Create texture and add visual depth
Ensure excellent durability
Minimize transit and installation damage
Mask blemishes and defects
Provide architectural variety and interest
Boost energy efficiency

The new super-strength effects coating lives up to the Valspar name by providing excellent durability and hardness to important projects. In fact, WeatherXL provides excellent color retention and the best protection against fading, chalking and and scratching – making it ideal for commercial and residential, agricultural and industrial buildings, metal roofing and wall panels.

For projects seeking LEED and Energy Star certification, WeatherXL can meet solar reflectivity standards. This helps reduce the operating costs of projects and cut energy bills by keeping buildings cooler through strong color retention that meets current solar reflective (SR) standards for Energy Star™ ratings.

At All American Steel, we offer the Valspar Weather XL Finish on both exposed fastener panels (commonly used for siding as well as roofing on many agricultural buildings), but also on standing seam / hidden fastener panels.
