New Product Announcement: Exterior Paint
Earlier this month, paint and coatings manufacturer Benjamin Moore launched its new exterior paint specially formulated to withstand moisture. Element Guard was reportedly designed to withstand wind-driven rain, excessive humidity and other harsh weather conditions.
The company reports that the paint can resist rain as soon as 60 minutes after application and be applied in temperatures as low as 35 degrees F. As a result, the product can extend the painting season, the company says.
Additionally, according to the release, Element Guard offers good adhesion, resistance to cracking and peeling, and is mildew-resistant. It is ideal for use on various exterior substrates such as vinyl and cedar siding, wood, brick and more, according to Benjamin Moore.
