The Sherwin-Williams Company (Cleveland, Ohio) introduced water-borne acrylic-alkyd versions of the company’s ProMar 200 and ProClassic coatings, reported to deliver durable, smooth, high-performing finishes with reduced environmental impact.
The company says the products combine the best performance benefits of alkyd and acrylic paints, offering the application and finish characteristics of alkyd coatings, the non-yellowing properties of acrylics, and low VOC content.
Steve Revnew, Sherwin-Williams vice president of product development, said professional paint users in the past accepted the relatively high VOC content of alkyd paints due to the application and finish benefits these products offered. “Today, however, advanced water-based paint technology allows us to achieve alkyd paint performance at a near-zero-VOC level, paving the way for more environmentally responsible coatings” such as the new alkyd-acrylic products, he said.
The company says the ProClassic brand has long been a preferred coating choice for wood trim and accents, while ProMar 200 has served as a coating solution for high-volume professional customers in commercial environments. The acrylic-alkyd versions of the products are said to “add an extra layer of VOC-compliant value to any building project.”
