Wood Coatings

Driving sustainable and high performance options for waterborne wood coatings

It’s the oldest building material on the planet. But wood is still a huge part of how we want our homes and offices to look and feel.

From flooring to cabinets and siding to tables, we furnish living and working spaces with wood everywhere we can. Wood has a timeless beauty. But it isn’t ageless.

Coatings in wood paints, stains, and sealers help protect it from scratching, discoloration, stains, and other wear and tear. They preserve its desired color, texture and gloss.

Coatings can also improve the safety and sustainability of paints and sealers. Invisible particles given off by wood paints can affect Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) – which is why consumers and regulatory bodies are right to push the industry toward lower-VOC formulations. Exterior wood coatings can have a similar impact on the environment, which is driving a gradual shift away from solvent-borne coatings to water-borne alternatives.
