Formaldehyde Free Finishes

Sherwin-Williams announced it will add four additional products to its F3 line of formaldehyde free finishes. The new additions include:  Sher-Wood F3 Hi-Bild PreCat White Lacquer, Sher-Wood F3 Kemvar Plus Conversion Varnish, Sher-WoodF3 KemvarPlus Surfacer, and Sher-Wood F3 PreCat Primer/Surfacer. F3 products are traditional, catalyzed products with none of the formaldehyde typically emitted during application and curing, and offer the same performance and aesthetics without concern of formaldehyde, says the company. Finishers benefit by eliminating both the strong odor of formaldehyde from their finishing process, as well as the residual formaldehyde odor that often causes complaints during installation and unpacking of wood products, adds Sherwin-Williams. The existing F3 line-up includes Sher-Wood F3 Hi-Bild PreCat Lacquer, Sher-Wood F3 Kemvar Varnish, and Sher-Wood F3 Kemvar Sealer. All F3 finishes are available for use as drop-in coatings on existing finishing lines. Sher-Wood F3 Kemvar Varnish has achieved GREENGUARD Certification, certified to GREENGUARD standards for low chemical emissions into indoor air during product usage.
