Valspar claims new Zenith water-based finishes match the durability of solvent-based coatings while providing a high-performance, low odor, VOC-compliant and HAPs-free product. Zenith also reportedly delivers up to 20 percent greater coverage of wood surfaces than traditional solvent-based formulations.
The line includes water-based formulations of the existing Valspar wood coatings collection. The Zenith Color Choice Finish Design Program includes wiping stains, spray stains, liquid glaze, powder glaze and basecoats. Zenith waterborne topcoats include lacquers, pre-catalyzed lacquers, conversion varnishes and UV coatings.
