Vermont Natural Coatings’ PolyWhey has been named a 'Top Green Finish For Hardwood Floors' by WoodRight Forest Products. WoodRight is owned and operated by sustainable forestry and consumer advocacy groups in Virginia and Ohio.
WoodRight included six products for hardwood floor finishes that meet its strict criteria for durability as well as environmental friendliness.
Vermont Natural Coatings PolyWhey Floor Finish “uses recycled whey protein, a byproduct of the cheese industry, to replace petroleum-based ingredients in its coatings,” WoodRight noted, adding “this renewable product is known for its ease of application, even coverage and is very quick drying, resulting in a protective hard shellac-like finish with a semi-gloss sheen.” PolyWhey also is available matte and satin sheens.
Vermont Natural Coatings has been a vocal advocate for indoor air quality regulations, in schools as well as residences.
