Last year was a great year for the coatings industry! Major manufacturers listened to their customers and teamed up to create new products based off of the feedback they’ve been given by the people who work with the materials day in and day out, and it shows.
PPG Paints’ Coatings
PPG announced their new breakthrough: Int/Ext Waterborne Acrylic Paint, which consists of a special technology that gives excellent hardness, adhesion, and block resistance to a variety of commercial and residential surfaces, like trim, floors, cabinets, shelving, railings, and equipment. It also works on metal, concrete, wood, laminate, fiberglass, and many plastics. It also dries super fast! Just two hours for a recoat and 17-20 minutes to touch.
PPG released another new coating last year called Olympic Maximum Stain + Sealant in One. This was enhanced last year with a Weather-Ready technology that enables stain projects to take place despite poor weather conditions. This can be applied after rain only 8-12 hours after application, so unpredictable rain is no longer an issue.
Glidden Diamond Paint + Primer creates a smooth, breathtaking finish with super tough durability that withstands wear and tear. It starts at under $25, so you can achieve great quality and performance at an affordable price with this interior paint and primer in one.
Rust-Oleum has also put forth some brand spanking new products to rave about, including Zinsser Odor Killing Primer. While applying white, it dries clear. This water-based, low odor primer basically kills existing odors on interior surfaces, so it works wonderfully for eliminating pet odors, fire and smoke damage, and food and cigarette smoke odors. Best of all, it’s compatible with all clear finishes and paints.
Designed with elastomeric qualities, Zinsser WaterTite Flexible Primer and Finish can expand and contract to fill hairline cracks. This is ideal for use on existing and new exterior masonry and concrete, including brick and stucco. It has a 10-year Durability Guarantee and is moisture and mildew resistant.
Sherwin-Williams offers some new top-of-the-line coatings themselves: Paint Shield Interior Latex Paint being one of them. This is one of their most innovative products because it is the first EPA-registered microbicidal paint, killing 99.9% of Staph, VRE, MRSA, E.coli, and Enterobacter aerogenes in less than two hours after being painted on the surface.
SnapDry Int/Ext Acrylic Latex Paint was created for trim and doors to dry in just an hour so a door can be closed without sticking. It’s resistance to fingerprints, dirt, weathering, and UV rays make it ideal for jobs with a time crunch.
