Vermont Natural Coatings: The ‘Whey’ to Go

Vermont-Natural-Coatings

Eco-Building Products is happy to announce the addition of Vermont Natural Coatings to our line of natural, non-toxic finishes and cleaners. Vermont Natural Coatings utilizes PolyWhey to create a safe, durable and easy-to-use finish that meets the highest professional and environmental standards.

PolyWhey is the new generation of polyurethane, a truly waterborne finish that is an integral part of VNC’s ongoing agricultural focus: to find better methods for common tasks using surrounding resources. By displacing the toxic components traditionally found in wood finishes with this recycled whey protein, Vermont Natural Coatings has created a neutral odor, quick-drying and easy-to-clean family of tough, earth-friendly finishes for all interior and exterior wood surfaces.

The patented natural wood finish is an important step forward over existing water-based finishes, eliminating the need for heavy metal driers and displacing the toxic co-binders and carcinogenic solvents often found in past and present finishes. The whey in Vermont Natural Coatings’ products is a natural by-product of the dominant cheese-making agriculture of Vermont. By reusing as much of this by-product as possible in the creation of a high-quality home improvement product, farms and waterways stay clear of the excess whey.

Natural Wood Finish Offerings from Vermont Natural Coatings

Vermont Natural Coatings has your indoor air quality in mind when offering their PolyWhey Natural Floor Finish. This evolved clear coating uses recycled whey to create a durable and safe sealer and topcoat in one. In addition to new bare wood, VNC Natural Floor Finish can also be conveniently applied over both oil-based stain finish, as well as other waterborne finishes, with superior coverage.

PolyWhey Natural Furniture Finish inherits the same recycled whey properties as the Floor Finish and is recommended for bare wood or previously stained furniture, trim, cabinets, paneling, tabletops and doors, as well as craft items. This stunning furniture finish is available in gloss, semi-gloss and satin finishes to meet all your wood furnishing needs.

Vermont Natural Coatings Furniture FinishUsed in conjunction with PolyWhey Interior Floor or Furniture Finishes, VNC’s Woodtone Series Concentrated Tints are color-rich, fade resistant and will transform the look and feel of interior wood surfaces. These quick-mix tints have superior colorfast qualities, ensuring consistent tone throughout the project. The Woodtone Series are no-VOC and have no flash point, providing safe, professional color throughout the application and beyond.

Vermont Natural Coatings were created with exterior wood surfaces in mind as well. PolyWhey Exterior Wood Finish is a tough, element-repelling finish that creates a non-toxic and waterproof barrier. With advanced protection from mildew, mold and harmful UV rays, VNC’s Exterior Finish is safe for people and pets. Use on exterior wood decks, fences, railings, siding, outdoor furniture and other exterior wood surfaces for a durable, elegant finish.

Finally, to keep your Vermont Natural Coatings Finish looking its very best, VNC offers a specially formulated, ready-to-use Wood Cleaner. Removing dirt, dust, grease, grime, food and stains is a breeze with this innovative, non-toxic formula that keeps your home clean and safe. The biodegradable, vegetable-based cleaner is yet another example of VNC’s ongoing agricultural, locally-sourced focus. Used for daily or deep cleaning, VNC Wood Cleaner is also suitable for other surfaces such as tile, laminate and stone.
