LotusanĀ® paint

Inspiring Strategies


Product or process

The wings of many large-winged insects such as butterflies and many plant surfaces remain dirt-free without chemical detergents or expending energy, simply by how their complex surface topography interacts with the physics of water molecules. Lotusan® exterior coating uses these same micro-structural principles to regain its cleanliness automatically after the mere rinse of a rain shower.

LOTUSAN REVIEW
Those looking to paint your home with Lotusan be careful what you wish for. We painted our brand new home with Lotusan in Nov 2011. In only 4 years the paint has deteriorated and faded which STO has blamed on an unknown chemical being sprayed on my home (what!!). Finger and handprints are everywhere which we are unable to remove. Water that comes off our courtyard wall has left streaks of black down the walls. We had our home cleaned because we thought it was dirt - its not dirt, its a complete deterioration of the product. We have been told now by STO common household cleaners damage Lotusan and we can only wash our windows with deionised water (what about rain!) ... We have a paint scientist telling us that the product is not fit for purpose and have several painters confirming that the paint should not be used on anything below a 2nd story so no one touches it (are you kidding me!!)
