Paint manufacturer Sherwin-Williams has introduced a coating that is designed for large-scale builders.
Compared to entry-grade builder interior coatings, Supreme High Build has better washability and hide, the company says, adding that the ease of application boosts productivity, requiring less labor to deliver a smooth, uniform finish.
“Like all professionals in the industry, builders are facing challenges from the skilled labor shortage and the demanding new residential market, so we are always looking for solutions to make their jobs easier,” says Kiel Menick, new residential marketing manager at Sherwin-Williams. “Supreme High Build is designed to cover a larger surface area in a smaller amount of time in a finish that hides better, saving large-scale builders time so their workers can quickly move on to other areas of the project.”
The latex paint has a high transfer efficiency with the ability to build up to 8 to 10 mils wet in a spray coat, compared to 4 to 6 mils wet when spraying at the same rate with a conventional coating, Sherwin-Williams says.
It’s available in a flat sheen that diminishes minor flaws, as well as eggshell and semi-gloss finishes. The product will be available at Sherwin-Williams stores nationwide in spring 2019.
