Products – Sherwin-Williams Paint
Indoor air quality is the first criteria many architects and government agencies look at when specifying products for LEED buildings and other projects geared to minimizing the environmental footprint. Features such as zero VOCs, low odor, resistance to mildew and an anti-microbial, silica-free formula combine to make Sherwin-Williams the ultimate choice for these projects.
“Green is defined not only as low-VOC,” explains Steve Revnew of the Sherwin-Williams Company. “Durability is just as important.”
By using higher quality coatings products, he explains, you paint your clients’ properties less often. Over the years, reducing the number of repaints helps reduce waste and emissions. Similarly, the use of paints like ProMar 200 XP helps reduce emissions and waste by allowing the use of one less coat than standard competitive coatings.
Sherwin-Williams scientists have created formulas using sustainable raw materials like soy and sunflower oil, and continually try to improve productivity and reduce emissions by developing coatings that require fewer coats and repaints. Improvements to their manufacturing process and distribution system further conserve natural resources.
In the end, we choose Sherwin-Williams paint because it emphasizes the importance of durability and indoor air quality, while reflecting our company-wide green focus and our commitment to a better environment.
