Exterior wall coating - Water repellent paint for walls

It's a very familiar sight: Soiling on facades becomes increasingly visible and the facades increasingly unsightly over time. Buildings in our part of the world, in Ireland, are severely exposed to the elements and are fated to suffer seriously. Moisture and dirt provide the ideal environment for development and growth of algae. 

However, we want our homes to appear clean and cultivated and the best solution to avoid soiling and algae attacks is water repellent paint.  

How Sto Lotusan water repellent paint works: 

What makes this product unique, is Lotus-Effect® technology.  The Sto exterior coating possesses a highly water-repellent surface similar to that of the lotus leaf. 

A lotus plant leaf is unable to keep hold of dirt particles. Dirt simply flows off with the rain droplets that fall onto the plant. Its micro structure has been modelled on the lotus plant to minimise the contact area for dirt and water.  Dirt and water cannot be hold of.
