More Options, Less Impact on the Environment
Sherwin-Williams introduces more zero-VOC options for every type of project and budget
ORLANDO, Fla. (January 12, 2011) — Sherwin-Williams is committed to meeting the evolving needs of professional customers with an expanded portfolio of coatings that meet the most stringent environmental regulations. Offering solutions for a variety of performance and budget requirements, the company announces an enhanced formulation for Harmony® — one of its most popular green coatings — and has added a complete line of ProMar® 200 Zero VOC paints as well as EcoSelect™, a budget-friendly option for new construction.
Keep rooms looking and smelling fresh
Sherwin-Williams has enhanced its ever-popular, zero-VOC Harmony product with a formula that offers improved application, better hide and new odor-eliminating technology that actually reduces odors in the air — keeping rooms smelling fresher, longer. The length of time Harmony actively reduces odors depends on the concentration of the odors, the frequency of exposure and the amount of surface area being painted.
Harmony is one of five Sherwin-Williams coatings that carry the company’s GreenSure® designation, which identifies products that offer maximum performance and are designed and manufactured talking steps to reduce environmental impact and to meet or exceed the most stringent regulatory requirements. Harmony also withstands frequent washings and resists mildew on the paint film with an antimicrobial agent.
The professional’s top quality, complete zero-VOC solution is here
Setting the professional standard for superior quality for three decades, ProMar 200 Interior Latex is now available in a zero-VOC formula. It is the first complete professional line with zero VOCs available in four sheens — flat, low sheen, eg-shel and semi-gloss — plus every color, including deep, vivid accents. ProMar 200 Zero VOC delivers maximum productivity with outstanding durability and touch-up, and excellent hide. Like Harmony, ProMar 200 Zero VOC is a Sherwin-Williams GreenSure-designated product.
Stay on-schedule and on-budget
EcoSelect Zero VOC Interior Latex is a new affordable option designed to provide good hide and easy application for fast turnaround. Ideal for new multifamily and single home construction, not only does EcoSelect apply quickly and easily with minimal effort, but it also has limited drag, good spatter resistance and creates a uniform final appearance that provides reliable touch-up. EcoSelect is available in a flat finish in white and can be tinted to a wide range of colors.
