Sherwin-Williams has introduced an enhanced Harmony Paint, with an innovation that helps promote better indoor air quality by reducing airborne concentrations of formaldehyde and other aldehydes. The enhanced formula features formaldehyde reducing technology that helps reduce the levels of these volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from potential sources like insulation, carpet, cabinets, fabrics and other building materials.
"Combined with Harmony Paint's Odor Reducing Technology, which helps reduce common indoor odors, this newest groundbreaking innovation makes it ideal for environments where elevated airborne concentrations of formaldehyde may exist," said Karl Schmitt, vice president, marketing, Sherwin-Williams.
Harmony Paint also delivers great hide and a durable finish that can withstand frequent washings, according to the copany. It has anti-microbial properties to inhibit the growth of mildew on the paint film and has reduced odor during application and drying compared to conventional coatings. Like all Sherwin-Williams latex and water-based paints, Harmony is tinted with ColorCast Ecotoner® colorants that do not add VOCs to the tinted paint. This zero-VOC acrylic latex paint is also GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certified and GREENGUARD Certified for Children and Schools for low chemical emissions into indoor air during product usage.
Enhanced Harmony Paint will be available in flat and eg-shel (April 2013) and semi-gloss (mid-summer 2013).
