PPG's Olympic Brand Launches OLYMPIC ELITE Advanced Super-Premium Exterior Stain Line

April 16, 2014

OLYMPIC Paint and Stain has launched OLYMPIC ELITE Advanced Stain + Sealant in One, a super-premium exterior stain line offering a new palette of wood- and nature-inspired hues, available exclusively at Lowe's stores nationwide. Developed for durability and incorporating Olympic Stains' highest levels of protection against the damaging effects of sunlight, water, mildew and algae on the coating, Olympic ELITE targets the homeowner who appreciates the beauty of wood and is willing to invest a bit more to enhance and protect with more beautiful and durable color.
The new ELITE line introduces WOODLAND OIL — a series of super-pigmented, super-penetrating semi-transparent stains in Natural, Mahogany Blaze, Kona Brown and a gold-brown hue called "Mountain Cedar." Woodland Oil penetrates quickly, even on exotic hardwoods. ELITE also adds a semi-solid stain to the Olympic line, a bridge between semi-transparent and solid color for wood with more imperfections.

Utilizing COLOR RICH Technology, Olympic ELITE stain delivers new levels of clarity in transparent stains and rich, low-luster solid colors that will resist mildew and algae on the paint film better than standard flat, solid color stains. Each wood-inspired hue is available in semi-transparent, semi-solid and solid color stains so homeowners can keep the color they love as their decks age. The solid color stain palette also offers 28 nature-inspired hues to complement wood, brick and stone finishes and to harmonize with the home's natural setting. Colors span eight color families and offer beautiful palette combinations.

To keep decks, patios and other outside wood looking great, Olympic ELITE incorporates a 4-SEASON Protection Package — featuring urethane-fortified resins for resilience and durability, exceptional ultraviolet (UV) resistance, enhanced waterproofing protection and the most powerful biocide package offered in the Olympic stain line for a more mildew- and algae-resistant film.
