Let Nature do the Work with Sherwin-Williams Emerald® Rain Refresh™ Self-Cleaning Exterior Coating

New Self-Cleaning Technology™ helps repel dirt, minimizes maintenance time


CLEVELAND (June 22, 2020) – Sherwin-Williams introduces new Emerald® Rain Refresh™ Exterior Acrylic Latex with Self-Cleaning Technology™, an innovative coating designed to be self-cleaning by shedding dirt upon contact with rain or water. Emerald Rain Refresh gives professionals and homeowners a simple and convenient solution to maintain clean exteriors for a freshly painted look all year long.

“Exterior painting can be a time-consuming task, and typically requires constant maintenance against outdoor elements,” said Rick Watson, director of product information and technical services at Sherwin-Williams. “Emerald Rain Refresh easily washes away dirt to make upkeep easier and achieve a cleaner look to increase curb appeal.”

Sherwin-Williams successfully leveraged the Self-Cleaning Technology developed in Loxon® Self-Cleaning Acrylic Coating and applied it to the latest addition to the best-in-class Emerald product line – Emerald Rain Refresh. The brand-new coating has optimal application properties, simplifying the painting process for all experience levels.

Additional features include:

  • UV and weather-resistant qualities designed to reduce common exterior coating issues, such as blistering and peeling
  • Self-priming application to help save time during the painting process
  • An innovative formula suitable for most exterior surfaces, including wood, masonry and concrete
  • Ability to tint in VinylSafe® paint colors, allowing customers to select from a limited number of darker colors formulated to resist warping or buckling

Emerald Rain Refresh Exterior Acrylic Latex is available now in flat, satin and gloss sheens at Sherwin-Williams stores nationwide. Customers can also place an online order for curbside pickup. For more information, visit www.Sherwin-Williams.com.
