Vermont Natural Coatings, in partnership with Norton Abrasives, has launched Amber Sealer as the latest addition to its co-branded line of PolyWhey Professional Wood Floor products. PolyWhey Amber Sealer uses the strength of whey protein, a byproduct of cheesemaking, to create a natural oil-tone waterborne sealer for hardwood floors.
“Amber Sealer is an exciting addition to the Norton Abrasives | Vermont Natural Coatings line because it allows professional flooring contractors to achieve the look oil-based finishes offer without sacrificing the safety and health of their employees or their clients,” said Andrew Meyer, president of Vermont Natural Coatings.
Amber Sealer can be applied over bare or prefinished wood and dries in less than two hours. It is easy to apply, sands effortlessly and minimizes grain raise and tannin pull. Followed by two to three coats of PolyWhey 2500 or 3500 Wood Floor Finish, the end result is an oil-look floor with outstanding resistance to all forms of wear.
“The Amber Sealer is an important addition to the Norton|Vermont Natural Coatings product offering because it provides the rich look of an oil-modified finish without any of the harsh elements of an oil-modified product. After extensive in-field testing we are quite pleased with the tone and color achieved with just one coat of the sealer. You can also build on that color by applying multiple coats to get a more customized look. Plus the Amber Sealer is so easy to apply it makes getting that oil-modified look that much simpler,” said Dave Mansfield, market manager for Norton Abrasives.
“The Norton Abrasives distribution network and reputation for quality and innovation make them an ideal partner to release Amber Sealer. Contractors who already know and love the line have asked for an oil-tone option, and together we’re able to save them time and money while achieving incredible results,” continued Meyer.
The complete line of Norton Abrasives | Vermont Natural Coatings Professional Flooring Finishes are distributed throughout the United States and Canada. It includes PolyWhey 3500 for commercial and heavy traffic areas, PolyWhey 2500 for residential and light commercial hardwood floors, PolyWhey 3000 sealer, PolyWhey MVP Sport Floor Finish and PolyWhey MVP Sport Floor Sealer. Additionally, our Professional Wood Floor Cleaner is available in Ready-to-use and deep cleaning formulations for light daily cleaning to intensive scrubbing.
