What are the renewable resources in General Finishes Products?
Renewable resources are a recent, eco-friendly advancement in the paint and coatings industry.
They are comprised of plant proteins such as corn; as well as conventional and innovative oils derived from plants such as Euphorbia lagascae, Vernonia galamensis from the sunflower family, and Calendula officinalis, aka marigold.
General Finishes products formulated with renewable resources meet the standard of excellence you have come to expect - including adhesion, coverage, colour and durability - with all benefits of water finishes.
GF coatings made with Renewable Resources are: Enduro-Var II, Milk Paint, Water Based Wood Stain, Exterior 450 Stain and Wood Turner's Finish. Look for the green icon!
VAR Top Coat
Enduro-Var is a self cross-linking polyurethane that looks more like an oil varnish than a water coating. It ambers slightly, is highly water resistant, and is both sprayable and brushable. Enduro-Var adheres well ONLY over WATER STAINS, DYE STAINS, and RAW WOOD. Use Enduro-Var over any other surfaces at your own risk. Available in Flat, Satin, Semi-gloss and Gloss.
Note this product is end-of-line, replaced by the new VAR II.
