 Why Latex? Latex / Acrylic Coatings Oil Coatings
Environmentally Friendly Very low Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s) Oil primers expel toxic VOC’s into the atmosphere
Mildew/Mold Resistant Agents used in manufacturing resist mildew growth. Oil based paints can provide a nutrient source for mold and mildew spores to feed on and grow.
Moisture Resistant Sherwin-Williams uses resins that resist moisture penetration.
Durability Acrylic coatings offer long-term durability because the Resins maintain their flexibility, oil primers get brittle as they age. Oil based coatings continue to oxidize; the paint film becomes harder and more brittle. Over time, this can cause cracking or peeling.
